Another mole salamander much like the previously posted Barred Tiger Salamander is this Marbled Salamander. Both appear to be pretty happy fellows, judging from the large smile on this salamander’s face and the Tiger’s.
However, unlike the Tiger Salamander which can grow up to 14 inches in length, the Marbled Salamander typically only reaches a measly 4 inches. Kind of a bust.
I still love him though! As someone of small stature myself (I’m 5’2″) I hold those that are vertically (or I guess horizontally, in this case) challenged in high regard.
