    Desmognathus?

    Is the salamander in the picture an desmognathus or some thing else.



    The pic is taken by the company that imported him/her.

    Thanks in advance

    Though it is hard to tell with the picture you provided,,,it almost looks like a Desmognathus monticola Dunn - Seal Salamander. Which has a range of the southern to central appalachian mountains. Can you possibly get more pics to post ?

    More (and hopefully larger) pictures would definitely help. Especially shots from the side, above, below, and of the face. Size descriptions may also help some. As Ken pointed out, it does look like it could be Desmognathus monticola, but it also bears a resemblance to several other Desmognathus species known as dusky salamanders (though technically the name "dusky salamander" can apply to any Desmognathus species). From what I can tell in your photo, the hind legs look much more robust than the front legs though, which does suggest it's Desmognathus and not another similar genus.
