Salamanders Galore...and Newts

April Claus visited us today and took us to find salamanders. We looked in a cold water spring and in damp wooded areas. We found 13 different types of salamanders. Adam found the most diverse and we were really proud of him. Allison found the only Long Tail Salamander. And Derek was the first to catch a salamander.
After we got back and started blogging Mark looked down and found a Red Spotted Newt!! We have no idea how he got here, but it was a really neat surprise.
