Hi.
I have recently been trying to find spotted salamanders, I believe I have found some promising spots, but I just keep finding redbacks. I am hoping for some of you with more expieriance may be able to help? Any input is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I generally had luck finding them near the pools they spawned in before they dispersed. That being said I usually found them in April.

I've heard a good way to find some is driving on country roads or walking in the woods at night with a bright flashlight on a warm, rainy, Spring night. The yellow spots should really stand out.

I did get out the other day, and found some nice vernal pools that look like they would be suitable. Do you know what type of land they prefer? I figured that gentle slopes near the vernal pools would be best, so the ground won't be too water logged. Does that sound right to anyone?

They are found primarily in hardwood and mixed deciuous forest habitats, but may be found in mesic floodplains if forest cover is present.
