Default Who is this??

I live in Rhode Island, USA. and found this little beauty in the woodlands. Can anyone identify him? The little guy to the left is p. cinerus, is the yellow guy a variation of p. cinerus?
Thanks for reading,
Nicole

Your little friend is a Northern Two-lined Salamander (Eurycea bislineata).

Thank you Thomas. Do they have the same care requirements of p. cinerus?

You are very welcome, Nicole. Eurycea bislineata likes it a little wetter than Plethodon cinereus. Here is how I keep my Eurycea species: a layer of gravel substrate with limestone (or any flat stones) stacked on top of the gravel. I pour in water till it has just covered the gravel. My Eurycea species seem to do well in this setup. I try to mimic a stream-side habitat, which is where you will find most terrestrial Eurycea species.
