Salamanders in Sutton Massachusetts


Salamanders come in four types in Massachusetts - salamanders, newts, mudpuppies and lungless salamanders. The only mudpuppy we have is the "common mudpuppy" and the only newt we have is the "eastern newt". The mudpuppies live in the water and the newts are bright orange. If you find something else salamander-like, it's a salamander. The other nine critters are all in the salamander groups.

The ones I'm missing are the Jefferson Salamander, blue-spotted salamander, marbled salamander, northern dusky salamander, northern two-lined salamander, spring salamander, and four-toed salamander.
