seriously!?

Nice job! Notice how some of the eggs have a greenish color to them? That's from an algae called Oophila amblystomatis. The algae provides oxygen to the developing salamander embryo, and the algae benefits by receiving nitrogen-rich waste produced by the salamander.

Thank you for the letting us know about that algae stuff. We have a queston for you. Why do the eggs have jelly around the eggs?

The jelly provide protection to the developing embryo, keeping predators and disease away.
