April 25th Salamandering

Dimi and I attended the Rutgers Vertebrate Zoology class field trip. We went to Hacklebarney State Park and a wildlife management area in Sussex County (the same one that I visited on March 24th). We had a successful day, the class found 10 species of salamanders. I am only counting species that I personally find, so the spectacular Marbled Salamander (see picture below) found by someone else isn't included in my big year count.
