Nice stuff Kelly! You really do well with that camera.

That is definitely an Amphiuma means! That brings the total up to 11 salamander species for that spot (we also missed Notophthalmus when we were there).

Kelly, I am a producer for the American Museum of Natural History in NYC. I'd like to speak with you about permission to use a few of your salamander photos for a temporary video about animal conservation. Please contact me at laura@amnh.org or 212-313-7237 (Soon if poss.) Thanks!
