A Perfect End to a Day of Herping

At the end of my herping for the day, I flipped one more stump to find not one, but two spotted salamanders! They were my second and third of the day, and overall my favorite amphibian (I mean look at those chubby heads and costal grooves!). This was a great way to end my day outside enjoying nature and its wonders.

Two friends (or aquaintances) under a stump.

These are awesome and make me want to go herping with you!
