Adult Longtail Salamander on Rock, Pennsylvania

As mentioned in my previous post, I went on a herping trip to the Delaware Water Gap NRA a few days ago. The Longtail Salamander was a target species. These large, beautiful salamanders are a species that I had been hoping to find ever since beginning my search for reptiles and amphibians. While they do occur in Virginia, it seems I needed to head up north to find one of their strongholds.
