Day 176: Cave Salamander

image

These little salamanders love to live in the Great Onyx Cave. They love lots of caves but appear to be like this one because there aren’t as many people hiking through it all day long.

My more educated friend informed me that the scientific name is Eurycea Lucifugus.
Smile and shrug.

I just think they are beautiful. There aren’t many vibrantly colored critters in Kentucky so these sallys are a wonderful treat :-)
