Redback salamander Posted by Hello

Love is in the air for these small salamanders. They mate from October to April. Guess that's not such a bad way to spend the winter. The odds must be pretty good that any individual will get lucky -- we found about 15 of these little amphibians today all within a fairly small area. They live under leaf litter and rotten logs. And yes, we did find new accomodations for the ones that were under logs that had to be moved off the fire line.
