1.5 and counting
It's been raining for most of the day, so after dinner I thought I'd take a quick look outside to see if there were any amphibians around. I said to Eric somewhat hesitantly but hopefully, "Maybe I can find a salamander..." Then I opened the back door with my headlamp on, looked down and said, "There's one!" About 1.5 inches of rain has fallen so far today. I'm sure many salamanders, frogs, and toads are taking advantage of the wet conditions!
Three quick images of an Arboreal Salamander (Aneides lugubris) in Cotati on 24 October 2016:
