The two reasons why Tiger salamanders are reappearing is that the land helped bring back the species from almost becoming extinct. They also use their tails to ward off predators. For example, the text states "Salamanders are scaleless, but some secrete a toxic, sticky substance from glands in their tails to ward off predators." This shows how they use their tail to ward off predators. Another quote states that "Schlimm recently explored one of several seasonal wetland areas on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, where extensive vegetation management over the past decade helped restore natural breeding habitats of these salamanders." This shows how Maryland's land helped bring back the species to its track.
