Default Re: Yellow-back, red back salamander

Overall this was a very good day for red-backs (but which day isn't really?) and I went back out and found a bunch more. I found so many I didn't even bother lifting all the logs in the usual spot. Two big ones were found together and one was gravid, I didn't check but I figured the other was a male? Anyway here is a picture of the big ol' female. Quality isn't great, she was moving around a lot, but at least you can see the bulge and the yellowish eggs---sort of. There was a heavy rain and I suppose it got all these guys out of hiding.
