Hi, welcome to the site. :)
caudata.org is mostly about conservation and education, so divulging details of where to find wild populations of a particular species is not allowed. Sorry to be so negative to a new member, so please don't be put off the forum, but there are always people looking to make a fast buck by collecting any species they can get their hands on.

Well, ok, but I meant to observe and photograph in the wild not selling.

Just to clarify: Chinadog wasn't suggesting that YOU would be selling. The policy for this part of the forum doesn't allow anyone to post locations because everyone in the world could read about those locations, and someone out there might exploit that information.

You may be able to find some information online that would narrow the species' ranges to particular counties.

The best time to go looking would be in early spring when breeding starts. In Georgia, that might be as early as February.

Looking for Ambytsoma is a blast! I'm surprised Georgia Wildlife doesn't have county maps,
but this one from BioWeb might help you! It's for maculatum, I couldn't find one for other A. spp. Good luck if you're still going out :)

My apologies, I did not see the note about not posting maps. I can't see how to delete this, but maybe a mod can take it down.

Does the same rule apply to invasive species? What about Ambystoma Super hybrids that are causing more destruction to native species then a herper ever would?
