One of the rarest salamanders in the country lives in Georgia – or, at least, it used to – a survey last year didn't turn any up in the wild. It's called the frosted flatwoods salamander, and there's a new project in Atlanta to breed the species in captivity.
The last time scientists documented one of these guys in Georgia was in 2015, near the coast. That's where they'd usually live, in longleaf pine forests.
Now, a bunch of flatwoods salamanders live in Buckhead.
