1. Identify this specimen to the nearest taxon required by the official list.
2. In what state is this specimen primarily found?
3. What features of this specimen allow it to be good at the action it is named for?
Two years ago I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Last year I knew stuff about amphibians, reptiles, freshwater, and more experiments, yay again!
Now I know stuff about oceanography, saltwater, birds, and fossils, yay for the third time!

I said featureS but one is fine, there's not much info on the genus anyway. Your turn!

1.ID to the nearest taxon required by the national list
2.Which part of the world are these salamanders limited to?
3.How many coastal grooves would you typically find on members of this taxon?
4.Is the temperature of the environments in which these salamanders live usually hot or cold? Why is this important for their survival?

1. Rhyacotritonidae
2. Northwestern United States
3.14-15 coastal grooves
4. Cold,they are sensitive to heat and might die if it is too hot.
