Eastern Mud Salamander

Pseudotriton montanus
Baird, 1850
McDowell Co., North Carolina. October 28, 2017.

“…“That looks like a mud,” said Josh, and once again he was correct. The last two salamanders of the night turned out to be Pseudotriton montanus montanus, the eastern mud salamander. They resembled their red ruber cousins in color and spots, but were more slender in appearance. Another new subspecies for me.”
