Frosted Flatwoods Salamander

Frosted Flatwoods Salamander

salamander-3-sm

The frosted flatwoods salamander is associated with the longleaf pine flatwoods that once extended across much of the Southeastern U.S. Today, due largely to habitat loss, their range within Florida has been reduced primarily to Apalachicola National Forest and St. Marks NWR. Because of this reduction in numbers from loss of habitat, the frosted flatwoods salamander is listed as Threatened under the Endangered Species Act.
