Abstract

I examined the diet of Phaeognathus hubrichti using stomach contents of preserved specimens and fecal samples from live salamanders. Land snails (20%) and arthropods (68%), including ants, beetles, and spiders, were the most numerous prey items found. Diet composition may indicate how habitat quality affects foraging behavior of Red Hills salamanders.
