Salamanders of Georgia exhibit

Long tailed salamander | Eurycea longicauda
The salamanders in our Salamanders of Georgia exhibit are probably the most secretive salamanders we have on display. Fascinating animals, yet it takes some patience to be able to see them. Three of the four species were out over the weekend, so I thought I would post some pics here.

When one of the Long tailed salamanders (Eurycea longicauda) eats it's quite surprising, as their tongues are very long, and their aim is extremely accurate.
