Identification: The northern two-lined salamander is a 2.5 to 4-inch salamander. They usually range in color from yellow to greenish-yellow to brown. They are most notably identified by a black or brown line that runs from each eye to the tail, along with a light mid-dorsal tripe. The light stripe will usually have black spots. The sides below the stripe are gray. They have a bright yellow belly.

Habitat: This salamander is found in/around rocky streams and brooks. Adults usually are under cover near the water’s edge. They are also found in wooded floodplains and sometimes in moist wetlands during particularly wet weather.
