Talking Ensatinas of the Oak Woodland

Normally I find ensatinas in a redwood forest type environment, but this time, I found two juveniles; one was in a non-riparian oak woodland, and the other one was found in the surrounding grassland. They aren't new species for me, but its always exciting to find them in new places

Photos of the Ensatina eschscholtzii xanthoptica and their habitat:

Nice! I find them in similar habitats in Marin and eastern Sonoma Counties.

thanks! I have herped in Sonoma County and Napa County, they have habitat similar to this, but redwood plant communities as well. This was in Santa Clara County.
