Rare Salamander Found at GRP

By Sandy Schenck

Alan Cameron from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission came out Sunday to the Green River Preserve to search for green salamanders which are endangered at the local level in NC. He found three sites with green salamanders – two of them had nests of hatchlings less than an inch long (see photo). According to Cameron, two of the four sites would make good locations to take campers for green salamander hunts. More information about green salamanders.
