Distribution:  In our region, this species occurs throughout much of western 2/3 of Texas amd the eastern 2/3 of New Mexico. This and other forms of Tiger Salamanders have been sold extensively throughout the western states as fish bait resulting in numerous introduced populations outside of their natural range in the Southwestern U.S.

Legal Status:  The Barred Tiger Salamander has no protected status in our region.
