North Country explorer from Gouverneur
On this beautiful spring day my herpetology class went out searching for vernal pools containing herp eggs and spermatophores. We found several vernal pools that had some! We found this cluster of spotted salamander eggs in the second vernal pool we stumbled upon. I identified them as spotted salamander eggs because of they were attached to a twig, and their milky-white coloration. They also held their shape when lifted out of the water.
