Adult Photo and Foot Detail Photo of Four-toed Salamander courtesy of John White
Three distinct characteristics make identification easy:
an enamel-white belly with small black spots (the only salamander with this),
four toes on both front and hind feet (most salamanders have five toes on back feet), and
a marked constriction at the base of the tail. A rusty brown back and gray sides.
