    Here is a list of some of our most common salamanders and what they eat:

    Spotted salamander: worms, centipedes, crickets, spiders

    Redback salamander: small invertebrates (these salamanders will even climb up small shrubs and other plants to search for food)

    Blue-spotted salamander: earthworms, slugs, isopods (potato bugs, pill bugs)

    Eastern red-spotted newt: insect larvae, worms, amphibian eggs and larvae, leeches (remember, newts are aquatic salamanders, salamanders that live in the water)
