Spotted Salamander on Wikipedia

Ohio's State Amphibian, the spotted salamander. Salamanders have 550 species of amphibians and are typically characterized by a superficially lizard-like appearance, with slender bodies, short noses, and long tails. Salamanders have never more than four toes on their front legs and five on their rear legs, but some species have fewer. Their moist skin usually makes them reliant on habitats in or near water, or under some protection (e.g., moist ground), often in a wetland.
