Controlling the populations of insects and rodents, the Tiger Salamander is a bioindicator which means it helps judge the health of the ecosystem. These amphibians are native to the Mississippi River Watershed and can grow to between 7-14 inches. In captivity, they can live up to 25 years. They find soft soil where they can burrow and hide during the day. Nighttime is when Tiger Salamanders do their hunting, but even if they are attacked by predators, they can drop and regenerate limbs. This species is found in the U.S., southern Canada, and eastern Mexico.
