Homeowner surprised by salamander pile-up on doorstep

The St. Louis office of the Missouri Department of Conservation received a call last week from a homeowner who found a pile of ringed salamanders trapped in an outside stairway.

In autumn they travel by night to fishless woodland ponds where they may congregate by the hundreds for breeding. The salamanders were moved to a nearby fishless pond so they could continue.
