Ambystoma tigrinum

Clyde arrived as a juvenile with another salamander named Bonnie in the summer of 2021 after being removed from a pond in the Monte Cristo area of Utah. He and Bonnie moved in with an older Salamander named Gil. The three of them spend most of their time burrowing in the mud or hiding under their water dish.
