So, in what parts of North America (or the world) does it live?

That website has a picture showing the range where they live. Hope it is of some use to you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dougcard (talkcontribs) 07:33, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

References[edit]

Is this article now over referenced? Every single sentence now has its own reference even if the next sentence has the same topic and the identical reference is cited three or four times in a row? Is this the desired endpoint of referencing or is that here "overdone" a bit?


I just rewrote this thing, but I'm still new to this so I'm no good with the referencing. Anyone want to help me out? These were the main sites.

Cutaneous granular and mucous glands[edit]

I am currently researching and about to dissect the common mudpuppy in my Comparative Vertebrate biology course. I noticed that the amphibian page as well as the common mudpuppy page mention the cutaneous granular and mucous glands that these organisms possess, however there is little information explaining the functionality and mechanisms these glands provide. Do these two cutaneous glands merit value for me to add intellectual, credible, and reliable information that I find through research? Here is a link of an article I have already been reading and much more research is to come. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/030096299598515I

Mudpuppy teeth and feeding style[edit]

I think an interesting addition to the diet section of this page would be to elaborate a bit more on the different ways that the aquatic salamander use their teeth and their feeding technique. Aquatic salamanders use a type of inertial feeding that involves grasping the prey with their teeth and quickly sucking in water, inertial feeding[1]. Also maybe adding more detail to the anatomy of the mouth and teeth including the underdeveloped tongue. Hobbscassidy (talk) 04:56, 11 March 2017 (UTC)
