Tiger salamanders are harmless members of the Class Amphibia which easily lend themselves to observation and experimentation. As the name amphibian implies, these salamanders have two life forms, an aquatic larval stage and a terrestrial adult stage. Both forms are common and widespread throughout Iowa, yet adults, being terrestrial and less seasonal, are encountered more frequently than the larvae.
