A Red-backed Salamander for Ruby Tuesday

When my husband overturned a rock he called to me. "I found a little red snake!", but it wasn't so for to first appearances and conclusions we were mistaken, for snakes do not have legs and this little salamander does.)Please double click on the picture above to see its legs!

.It spends most of its lifetime under rocks. The red-backed Salamander does not have lungs as most salamanders do and you can learn more about this little salamander by clicking HERE
"Home Sweet Home among and under rocks". This little salamander does not live in water!

Happy Ruby Tuesday to all. Ruby Tuesday is a meme hosted by Mary, the Teach, that celebrates red. To see more contributions to this meme or to share your own red for

I love the red-back salamander--we have them too. You are inspiring me to go look under rocks.

The things that slither AND walk! Amazing, really. I used to catch them and play with them. Don't think I could anymore!
