 Question???????

In your area, there is a complex of several species of mole salamanders (the Jefferson, blue-spotted, and small-mouthed) that all look similar and hybridize like crazy, so it can sometimes be difficult even for a specialist to tell you exactly what a particular specimen is without analyzing it genetically in the laboratory! In fact, I have heard that in large areas across the Great Lakes region, within the hybridization zone, there are no pure Jeffersons or blue-spotteds at all, only hybrids with various types of genetic makeup. Please post a photo if you can.
