If you are looking for a unique and endangered amphibian, you might want to learn more about the frosted flatwoods salamander. It’s a small and slender creature that can grow up to 15 cm (6 in) long and has a silvery-gray or black body with white spots. It has a small head, short legs, and a long tail that helps it burrow underground.
This frosted flatwoods salamander has an extraordinary life cycle that makes it stand out from other salamanders. It undergoes a unique process called metamorphosis, transforming from an aquatic larva into a land-dwelling adult. It also spends most of its life in an elusive and secretive manner, making it a rare sight to behold.
