The spotted salamander adds a colorful dash to the Vermont outdoors. And now is a great time of year to see them.

As the temperatures slowly climb northward, you're about to see a lot of movement outside. Especially if you look really closely at the spring migration of reptiles and amphibians.

Vermont Edition talks with Jim Andrews, coordinator of the Vermont Reptile & Amphibian Atlas, and Steve Parren, Vermont Fish & Wildlife rare species biologist, about ribbon snakes, five-lined skinks (Vermont's only lizard), wood frogs, blue-spotted salamanders, mudpuppies and more.

Broadcast live on Thursday, April 12, 2018 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
