Could this little guy really be a baby Saugeen River Monster?
Sadly, no, he’s actually a yellow spotted salamander. Those spots on his sides are brilliant yellow. He’s shown here a little larger than life size.
Norm and Harriet Trepanier were lifting their cracked basement floor when they found him curled up under the cement slab. How he got there is hard to say, but he did seem to enjoy the cool cellar on a hot day.
Now if you should happen upon a real Saugie, be sure to send us its picture. We love Saugie stories. CB
