North Carolina Red-Eft Newt on Green Moss
VANDYKE_2016BRPNC_Orange Newt Macro (????).tif
A juvenile Red-Eft Newt is slowed by cold temperatures during the morning hours, allowing the opportunity to photograph him on a lush mat of green moss. These salamanders spend the majority of their life in the water; it is only during this phase where they turn bright orange and travel boldly by land to find new areas.
