The delicate-skinned salamander is threatened by the dangers that agriculture poses to its habitat, such as commercial wheat farming. Human impact further threatens the population by desiccating and polluting the lakes and water reservoirs in which the salamanders breed. A serious threat also comes from predatory fish. “However, survival of this species appears to be compatible with cattle grazing, particularly if stock ponds are available for breeding.” (1)
