|In wet weather, Arboreal salamanders emerge from far underground to soak up moisture.|
|Lung less, the Arboreal salamander respires entirely through its skin.|
|Large eyes, broad muscular head, massive jaws, ideal for hunting prey in dark underground tunnels.|
|Square toes and a prehensile tail, this 5" female is typical of the species. Fragile, avoid handling.|
|Arboreals retreat far underground once the rainy season is over.
