ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - State wildlife officials have made a startling discovery in the Jemez Mountains.
The biologists were participating in a training workshop near Valles Caldera National Preserve last week when they came across what is believed to be the longest living Jemez Mountains salamander.
It's estimated to be at least 17-years-old.
The salamander was identified as one captured and tagged back in 1998.
