Sequoyah Slimy Salamander
Plethodon sequoyah

Size: 4 - 5 1/2 inches
Endemic to Beavers Bend State Park in McCurtain Co. in southeast part of the state.  Sequoyah slimy salamanders are usually found under rocks and debris in moist areas.  Part of the Plethodon glutinosis complex, all slimy salamanders look similar and can only be identified by range and genetic analysis.  As with other slimy salamanders, when disturbed they will release a sticky secretion from glands in their skin.
