  1. slender salamander

    A slender salamander refers to a group of small- to medium-sized amphibians belonging to the family Plethodontidae, which are characterized by their elongated and slender bodies, often with long tails. They typically live in moist habitats, such as leaf litter, crevices, and under logs, rocks, or moss. Slender salamanders are unique in their method of reproduction, as they do not lay eggs in water like most amphibians, but instead lay eggs on land, which develop directly into tiny salamanders without entering a tadpole stage. They vary in color from brown, black, to reddish-brown, and often have unique patterns across their body. Slender salamanders are predominantly found across North America.
