Stepping out


Well, after receiving almost 3 inches of rain in the past 24 hours, I stepped outside to see if any salamanders were out and about.  It didn't take long to find one!  In the photo above, note the expanded tips of the toes a feature that's apparently helpful for climbing.

This is a fairly large Arboreal Salamander (Aneides lugubris), the most common salamander in our backyard.  I'd estimate this individual was ~15 cm (~6 inches) long.

I'm so glad they're finally experiencing some rain!
