Spotted Salamanders

With spring upon us, our friends at the Center for Urban Habitats passed along a beautifully illustrated and informative fact sheet about one of our amphibious residents: the Spotted Salamander. These creatures thrive in the vernal pools and wetland areas of Horizons Village. Some grow to be more than nine inches long, and they’ve been known to hide as deep as seven feet underground! Click here to read the fact sheet.
