The Enriching Benefits of Natural Trail Systems

Frogs, Toads and Salamanders
Several species of amphibians inhabit the fen. Both frogs (Ranidae) and toads (Bufonidae) are numerous, visible and audible, but often we are not aware of the salamanders (Salamandridae) – including newts and mud puppies. They are seldom seen or heard as they are active mainly at night.
