This is for all you fellow herpers that need an example of different habitats to go by...

This spring doesn't look like the typical place you'd find salamanders, however it is home to pseudotriton ruber schencki and desmognathus monticola.

Desmognathus fuscus and desmognathus monticola habitat. I have found plethodon glutinosus on land and have a strong feeling there is more there.

That's it!!! I know it wasn't much but if you wanna know more just go to my album or pm me. I know alot of good spots and I just wanted to share this hoping it might help people searching for some of the species I found in the above habitats. Hope you enjoy!!!
