Embed Lead-backed Salamander - Plethodon cinereus

Lead-backed Salamander - Plethodon cinereus It had a blackish brown body with speckles.

Plethodon cinereus exhibits color polymorphism with two common color variations - the 'red-backed' variety has a red dorsal stripe that tapers towards the tail and the 'lead-backed' variety lacks most or all of the red pigmentation. This spotting shows the lead-backed variety.

Habitat: Deciduous forest

*I rarely encounter the lead-backed color morph of this species, but I've observed that they are much more skittish than the red-backed variety.
