Saw This Big ‘Spotted Salamander’ Last Night.

by Anura Guruge



It was during my nightly, 11pm, 1-mile walk — last night. It was raining & misty. Ideal time for salamanders to come out — especially in Spring.

I was wearing my bright headlamps & I could see ‘it’ SHINING on the road. I KNEW it was not a snake! Way too late in the day for snakes.

I knew it was a salamander though I can’t ever recall seeing that one that long in New Hampshire. What we normally see, quite regularly are small orange salamanders. Again on wet & moist nights like last night.
