this is the spotted salamander, from birth they have a symbiotic algae inside their cells which makes them the only vertebrate to do photosynthesis!!! theyre neat!!!

@Kaffe Few days ago, I found spotted salamander larvas in a old river watered public laundry.
I give a look everyday since ! They are amazing and interesting creatures.

@Kaffe they look like the ones we find in the pacific northwest. You would find the standing on their feet with the tail curled up in the morning sun. If they are a similar species, that would explain the pose. 👍
