Is it a frog? Is it a lizard? Not quite. It’s a salamander!
These amphibians have the moist, often shiny skin that is associated with frogs plus long, thin lizard-like bodies. They come in a variety of colors and patterns, so you can let your creativity run wild with salamander coloring pages. Most have spots, stripes, and other interesting patterns, so you can go wild with multiple colors. There are bright yellow and black salamanders, orange salamanders, and some with more muted color schemes.
This is one of the most fun animals for adults and children of all ages to color and possibly even own. Salamanders make excellent pets because they’re adorable and low maintenance when it comes to their need for food and shelter. They’re a great source of entertainment when kept in a glass tank. When they aren’t searching for a place to hide, you can see them swim and climb energetically.

Salamanders in Real Life
While most salamanders are around 6 inches long, some species can grow up to 6 feet long. There are also pygmy salamanders that never make it to a full inch in length. The largest species can weigh up to 140 pounds if not a bit more. The species you see in a pet store represents a small percentage of the salamanders identified around the world.
So, where do salamanders live? Some act like fish and spend a lot of their time in the water, but others mostly exist on dry land. They can live everywhere from bodies of water to caves and mountain ranges. While they’re all related, they have developed different skills and bodily features to help them survive a wide range of terrains.
Salamanders are one of the best pets for kids because they’re so energetic. They will happily whip around a glass enclosure for hours. They love to climb and have a lot of personalities, so kids of all ages find them engaging. They’re still easy to provide for and don’t require constant attention, so you can go about your life and still have a pet salamander.
If you can’t own a salamander, coloring one is the next best thing!
