Tennessee State Reptile & Amphibian

Tennessee State Reptile and Amphibian

Tennessee’s state reptile is the popular eastern box turtle. More unique is the official amphibian, the Tennessee cave salamander.

This secretive symbol might be thought of as complementing Tennessee’s state insect, the firefly. Its typical habitat—limestone caves containing streams—further recalls Tennessee’s state rock, limestone.
