So I live in Northern Mississippi and we never see many salamanders or newts but I discovered a little stream flowing through the woods and there were some salamanders in it but from what I observed the smallest ones (2-3 cm) did not have any gills but most definitely salamanders and the largest ones I saw (2 inches) were a yellowish brown with gills I plan to go back and get photos but I don't want to hurt the animals so it may be a little difficult I will keep updating this thread for help but if anyone knows a species of salamander that as a baby has no gills but progressively grows them I would appreciate the response and of course they could be two different species of salamander still unclear though

Hi, welcome to the site. :)
It's all but impossible to say what species without pictures, if you gently catch them in a clear plastic sandwich bag while you get some pics, then release them afterwards they should be none the worse for it.

I did actually get a picture of two of them before I let them go in a nice container I set up so let them sit comfortably in when I took pictures of them again I live in Northern MS in case that helps

    I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature

    Hey guys I was wondering if my axolotl looks fine to you he/she (still don’t know) I’d activate and eating as usual but I did notice veins in the tail area.. let me know what you guys think! Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
