Virtually adopt a Blue-spotted Salamander to help support Natural Areas programs that help monitor and protect the unique and amazing wildlife that lives in Milwaukee County.
Digital adoptions include a certificate in recognition of your adoption, a fact sheet about the animal, a salamander sticker a Milwaukee County parks print map and updates throughout the year about the work the Milwaukee County Parks Natural Areas team does to monitor and protect salamanders.
Blue-spotted salamanders can grow to around 5 inches and are named for their pattern of bright blue spots scattered over a nearly black body. Salamanders are found in hardwood forests where they use ephemeral ponds (small fishless pools that usually dry out by mid-late summer) to breed. They eat a diet of insects, earthworms, spiders, slugs, and centipedes.
