Information about the Red Salamander:
The Red Salamander is an amphibian member of the order Caudata, which are salamanders. They are native to North America, and can be found in a variety of habitats including temperate forests, small creeks, ponds, marshes, freshwater springs and slow moving rivers. They grow to be about 4-6 inches long. The family they belong to - Plethodontidae - are salamanders without lungs and instead respires through their skin. Pseudotriton ruber is perhaps one of the most primitive plethodontids, and therefore considered very important by some as a means to better understand how species evolve. It is, however, on the decline due to habitat destruction and global climate change.
