There was a large turnout for the salamander walk on Thursday. Thanks to all who came.
105 salamanders showed up at Windhover Pond that night, highlighted by the longest individual I’ve measured. She’s a little over 8 inches long and was so lipid-dense that she floated by default. She was actually not the heaviest of that day, which says that some other female out there was bringing a whole lot of eggs into the pond.
Check out her massive tail and picturesque coloration.
