The pelvic kidney is composed of nephrons that function in urine formation, and possibly as secondary sexual characteristics in some salamanders (i.e., the Ambystomatidae

A similar malformation has now been observed in a captive population of salamanders in the family Ambystomatidae
. The purpose of this paper is to provide descriptions of the morphology of the bone malformations, observed through x-ray analysis, of "Spindly-Leg Syndrome" and several other malformations occurring in these populations.
Two species of salamanders that occur in South Dakota are very distantly related and represent two families, Ambystomatidae
Spotted salamanders are members of the mole family of salamanders, Ambystomatidae
. Ambystoma maculatum is native to the eastern regions of the US ranging from Maine to Georgia extending west to Missouri and eastern Texas.
