Stream salamander

The Stream salamander is classified as Vulnerable (VU), considered to be facing a high risk of extinction in the wild.

The mountain stream salamander lives to the west and south of the Valley of Mexico. It lives in a altitude range of 2,700 to 3,200 miles above sea level. This species lives and breeds in small streams that flow through high-elevation pine or pine-oak woodland forests. More

among stream salamanders may also exist, regardless of life history, as demonstrated in vernal-pool breeding species. More

Leora’s stream salamander, like many of its close relatives, is a metamorphosing species of mole salamander. It therefore develops into an adult form, losing its larval characteristics such as gills and fins, and developing adult traits such as eyelids and functioning lungs. More

The Michoacan stream salamander has both neotenic and fully developed terrestrial (or ground-dwelling) populations. Neotenic populations retain their gills and fins throughout life, whereas metamorphosed individuals develop adult traits, such as a lack of gills, functioning lungs, eyelids and no fins. More
