I seldom see a salamander. Yesterday we were looking along an old country road in a dry ditch searching for rocks to strengthen the area where we had put up a fence and my husband overturned a large rock and called out to me. " You better come and look at this!" I had just mentioned to him a few minutes earlier thatI had nothing to post for Mellow Yellow. I was delighted when I saw what he had found and viewed this magnificently designed creature with its yellow spots on black! I have since learned that this is the largest salamander in New Brunswick and the only one of the Salamander species with yellow spots! This species is widely distributed in New Brunswick. As we continued on gathering rocks he found another spotted salamander and a small black snake which probably was a garter snake, that I did not see as I had wandered away from where he was working.
