Found this guy wandering around the job site not too long ago. He’s a Blotched Tiger Salamander (Ambystoma tigrinum melanostictum) and can grow to over a foot in length.
Seeing this adult Tiger Salamander is actually fairly unusual, as they usually make their homes in burrows as deep as 2 feet below ground. Young Tiger Salamanders are purely aquatic, but adults are wide ranging dry-land dwelling amphibians. As one of the largest and hardiest of land dwelling salamanders, they are popular as pets, but illegal to sell in the United States.
We let this guy go in the nearby field where he was found.
