Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site
Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site by National Park Service

Two species of amphibians have been seen at Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site, the green frog (Rana clamitans melanota ) and the northern two-lined salamander (Eurycea bislineata bislineata ). Although it is believed that the green frog does not actually breed within the historic site, this frog can be seen occasionally within the Saugus River wetland and the sluiceways of the Iron Works during the spring.

Unlike the green frog, the northern two-lined salamander has been observed breeding within Saugus Iron Works. These reclusive amphibians frequently seek shelter under logs, stones, and other objects near seeps, springs, and the Saugus River. It is within these sheltered areas that the female salamander lays her eggs.
