Default 2016 Best Caudate Finds!

As 2016 comes to an end, I'd thought I'd just make one big post compiling all my herping finds from this year. They are in chronological order. Also, check out my flickr, I post quite often; all sorts of nature photos.


And we start with a juvenile Ensatina xanthoptica that was rather dry and hot during a hot spell of the El Nino in February.

I'm always jealous of you guys over there with your diverse amphibian species, we only have three native newt species here in the UK. There's something about that aquatic Taricha photo that makes me feel like spring isn't too far away, even though it is! :)

Wish we had as much as terrestrial species here. We only have newts and a decimated population of fire salamanders. I would love to see some Dicampthodon species crawling around here.

We don't have as diverse a selection of Salamandrids, here in the US (Notopthalmus and Taricha, thats about it) xD

Also, ChinaDog, in the newt in the water photo, that population has access to a pond that is filled all year round, so some stay aquatic I believe. You can find newts there at any time of the year, thats where I go in the summer when I absolutely need to find caudates
