The Spotted Salamander can reach almost 10 inches in length and live for 30 or more years, most of which they spend underground.  These startlingly beautiful animals are spotted in bright yellow and sometimes orange, on a shiney black background.  On very early spring nights, they migrate to vernal ponds to breed, sometimes even crawling across snowbanks.  Hundreds of animals may migrate to a single pond- a truly spectacular sight. They are threatened by acid rain, outright habitat loss, habitat fragmentation by roads, the filling -in of vernal ponds, and the stocking of breeding ponds with fish.
