Family : Ambystomatidae


Ambystoma maculatum, Ambystomatidae

The Ambystoma macumatum is a 15-25 cm North-American salamander frequent in the deciduous forests. It spends most of its life underground, where hibernates for months, or hunting small preys in the litter. To reproduce after the great spring rains, it converges in mass to small ephemeral ponds without fish that might eat larvae and eggs © Giuseppe Mazza
