Two lined Salamander (Eurycea bislineata)

Well didn’t exactly find skinks on this sunny October morning but were successful at finding three different species of salamanders and one species of snake.  Pictured are three from the genus plethodon (Red and Lead back sal),one from Euryecea (Two lined salamander) and one Desmonagthus (Dusky Sal). The snake is a Thamnophis sirtalis or Eastern Garter Snake. Overall a productive program.
