Something ain't quite right here
Early spring is a heady time for young frogs, and they sometimes get a little...over zealous. Wood frogs will attempt to mate with most anything that moves and is approximately the right size in a vernal pool. While looking for a good salamander congress to photograph on a cold, rainy night in Stoneham on April 3, 2018, I started filming a salamander that I found near some spermatophores. I didn't notice for a moment that something wasn't quite right.
