Larval Flatwoods Salamander

The Amphibian Foundation logo, which was drawn by AF Founder Mark Mandica, is a stylized depiction of the larval form of the Frosted Flatwoods Salamander (Ambystoma cingulatum). Salamanders in this family (Ambystomatidae) include the Spotted Salamander (A. maculatum), the Marbled Salamander (A. opacum) and the Axolotl (A. mexicanum)
