Dunn's Salamander

Dunn's salamander Plethodon dunni

This large woodland salamander is one of the lungless salamander species; they breathe through their skin. Adults can grow to 6 inches. Dunn’s salamanders live in the shaded rocky edges of highly humid forested streams and moist talus. They prefer areas that are permanently moist but not in flowing water.
