Salamander Blocks Road

A road planned in south Kitchener, Ontario, has been held up when surveys found a threatened salamander that officials refused to identify. They will assess the impact of the road before moving forward. The newspaper dug up reports that noted Jefferson salamanders being found in the area, which are threatened in Ontario. (News source.)

    I used to enjoy the search for salamanders as a child. Been know to take a few hom as pets, they were a lot easier to find then. Recently I have notice quite a few of these blue-black couloured fellas their spotted sides. At the cottage on Lake Kashwacamack in the town of Ardock, On. there is plenty of crown land and wonderfully aged cedar trees, where these salamanders can easily be found.
    I wondered if this would be of intrest to anyone, if so, I could send in a picture to be sure they are the Jefferson Salamanders.
