Eastern Zig-zag Salamander
April, 2002- Union Co. IL
The first time I saw Zig-zag Salamanders was at Pine Hills.  I turned a log and found about eight of them.  There were two distinct color phases between the ones under this log.  There was the "normal" zig-zag phase, and the "leadback" phase.  Its sometimes difficult to think that these salamanders, living so close together could look this different.
