Four-toed Salamander Guarding Eggs

A female four-toed salamander guarding her eggs along the bank of a ridge-top vernal pond. Four-toed salamanders lay eggs under moss along the banks of vernal ponds, and guard them until the eggs hatch. Once the eggs hatch, the larvae drop into the pond, where they grow until they are ready to metamorphose into adults.
