Our spotted salamanders are both males – age unknown. We acquired in 2003 from Dr. Bryan Windmiller who obtained them legally for an amphibian and reptile class being taught in Maine.
Our Leopard Frog was donated by Bates College in December 2011. It was originally purchased from a biological supply company for a research study.
Once the study was complete, instead of euthanizing the frog, Bates asked Chewonki if we could use it for teaching. The research study project and age of the frog is unknown. It is unclear whether this frog is a Northern or Southern Leopard Frog.
