the streamside salamander is usually a brownish-gray to grayish black with numerous small, light gray speckles that sometimes merge on the sides to form a lichen-like pattern. A medium-sized salamander (11 – 19 cm), it has a stocky body and a small head. More

streamside salamanders have more rounded cusps similar to other ambystomatids. All reports prior to 1989 considered streamside salamanders to be stream-breeding small-mouthed salamanders. Therefore, changes in historical distribution may not be apparent. More

One reason to look at streamside salamanders is that these amphibians are actually sensitive bioindicators of degraded stream habitats. These salamanders are extremely sensitive to changes in their environment and their health is often directly linked to the health of their habitat. More
