Washington Salamander

Plethodon vandykei vandykei

The Washington Salamander, a subspecies of Van Dyke’s Salmander, is much less common in our neck of the woods than is the Rough-skinned Newt.

Washington Salamanders can be identified by the slim body; smooth, slimy skin; short toes; and the yellow color under the chin. This individual is a female, identified by the lack of a nasolabial groove.
