AMPHIBIAN TUESDAY # 70
It’s Amphibian Tuesday and we’re going to meet a little salamander that lives just north of us. We’re going on a hike in the woods, so grab your backpack, walking stick and a hat and let’s head out on today’s adventure!
MEET THE THREE LINED SALAMANDER!
Diet: carnivore: insects, spiders, flies
Conservation Status: common
- Three lined salamanders have long slender bodies.
- Three lined salamanders also have very long tails.
- They are nocturnal.
- Three lined salamanders have dark stripes down their backs and sides.
- They winter underground.
These little salamanders are adorable. We would love to spend a few days in the woods looking for amphibians of all kind. Did you know amphibians are a keystone species? They often help scientist determine the health of a habitat. If the amphibian population is healthy, then the habitat is probably pretty healthy too!
