Hi Folks,

I got a chance to get out to California for a couple days around Christmas. It was nice to walk around barefoot and see some salamanders out. Lots of Ensatina and Batrachoseps. Here's one of the Ensatina (from Santa Cruz Co.):

Wow great shots! And the habitat looks nice also. That first photo is good enough for a book/calendar photo Click the image to open in full size.

Wonderful pictures.

We were caught in a rainstorm and drenched to the bone just two weeks ago. The weather has been hit or miss the past month.

That first pic is definitely pic of the month quality. It's beautiful. How big was it?

Thanks to all for the nice compliments, I really appreciate it.

Pin-pin, did you get a chance to get out for salamanders when the rains were really bad? We had left before then, but it sounded bad. There was a great post on www.fieldherpforum.com by a guy who went out finding herps when everything was flooded. Some great photos.

Carly, it was a medium Ensatina, probably about 5cm snout-vent length. Really a great animal.

Thanks again, Mike
