Linda Moon and her colleagues from the Edwards Aquifer Authority(EAA) were snorkeling in a spring fed by the Edward Aquifer looking for salamanders. She flipped a rock and found two bead sized milky clear balls. These are the first two eggs of the Comal Spring salamander eggs found in the wild. Credit: Linda Moon,USFWS. In a study published recently by Ecosphere, the researchers describe how the two Comal Spring salamander eggs hatch. One male and one female.
