Seemed like good weather for amphibians, so I went out after dinner and found a few of these small vertebrates crawling among the redwood needles:
This is a California Slender Salamander (Batrachoseps attenuatus).
It was raining hard enough that taking pictures of them was a bit of a challenge. But here are views of two different individuals next to our garage. Sometimes they're more red, other times more gray.
I can't help thinking that the rain must feel pretty good to them!
I first wrote about slender salamanders last March, so if you'd like to learn more about them, check out that post here.
