Marbled Salamander and Eggs

The marbled salamander (Ambystoma opacum), shown here with a clutch of eggs in Jackson County, is found throughout the eastern United States between southern New England and Florida, including Alabama. They live in moist woodlands and floodplains under leaf litter and logs and in their burrows. They lay eggs in depressions under leaves or fallen logs.
