Species: Tiger Salamander
About Scallion: Murphy is our Tiger Salamander. If you don’t see him at first, it means he is buried under the soil! As an amphibian, Murphy loves to be in a warm and moist environment, so he spends a lot of his time digging tunnels under the soil. We don’t handle him very often since Amphibians are so sensitive to their environments, so this picture was a special occasion. Murphy’s favorite food is crickets!
