They live in the drainage system of the garage and have ventured out every few years. This is not a 100% positive i.d I am going by the location of the eyes. The eyes of typical spotted salamanders are not set so high on the head and don't "bug out" as much. It would be great if anyone could tell me what kind it is from just this one pic.

    Thank you very much, this is a great site.

    Yes it can. I changed this to Spotted Salamander. No worries if you are uncertain. There is a verification committee that reviews every record.

    If this is a spotted and not a tiger can it be moved?
