BC: The End

FC: Reticulated Flatwoods Salamander | Ambystoma bishopi

1: Classification | Kingdom: ANIMALIA Phylum: CHORDATA Class: AMPHIBIA Order:CAUDATA Family: AMBYSTOMATIDAE Genus: AMBYSTOMA Species: BISHOPI

2: General Characteristics | *9-13 centimeters long as an adult *Black color with gray spots or patches *They are amphibious because they live on land and in freshwater throughout different stages of their life *Common habitat is flatwoods and savannas such as Georgia and Florida *Individual females lay up to 225 eggs per mating season

3: Additional Information | *Reticulated Flatwoods Salamanders are at risk because their habitat is being destroyed for farming and housing *The decline of this population is affecting other species; for example the crayfish, who feeds of the larvae of the Flatwoods Salamander

4: Habitat | *Mainly in places throughout the US such as Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, and Florida *Land with woods and nearby ponds or lakes are the ideal habitat *This environment is suitable for amphibians because it consists of the two ecosystems they use for survival: dry land and water

5: What is putting them at risk? | *Reticulated Flatwoods Salamanders are at risk for a variety of reasons *The ponds and lakes that are used during various stages of life are drying out due to droughts *Land used in the other stages of life is being destroyed and used for agricultural and constructional reasons

6: Conservation Plans | *Captive Breeding Program- by taking in the Reticulated Flatwoods Salamanders and breeding them in a safe environment that cannot be destroyed the population decline would decrease. This program can be held in zoos, which imitate their natural environment without the risks.

7: *Water Conservation Program- by encouraging the humans who populate this environment to cut back on unnecessary water use can be a very effective way to prevent the ponds and lakes from drying until the drought passes
