Cave Salamander
Eurycea lucifuga


St. Louis, MO, USA




I dreamed of seeing this species for many years. I stopped briefly on a rainy night waiting to pick up my older brother from a delayed flight on the way to the youngest brother's wedding. Cave salamanders are insectivorous amphibians. They lay eggs, which hatch into larvae before morphing into their adult form.
