The three-lined salamander is a representative of the long-tailed salamanders, and is one of the most striking Eurycea in our region. The tail of Eurycea guttolineata is between half and two-thirds the total length of the animal. These salamanders are also easily identified by their coloration: the ground color varies from yellow to bronze, and there are three well-defined black lines that run the length of the animal. The middle line runs along the dorsum, and the other lines are on the sides. Three-lined salamanders are found in swampy areas, along the margins of sluggish streams. The three-lined salamander ranges from the mountains to the sea in South Carolina.
