Default Salamandering in the Fall

Went out looking for Spring Salamanders today (Gyrinophilus), although we were in the right location, we were unable to find any. We did find these red-backs (Plethodon cinereus), they're mundane, but the color morph fascinates me. Just thought I would share.

It says they only live near the coast, like South east, I live in central Alaska.

Wood frogs are pretty awesome too. Nothin' like freezing solid in the winter!

Yeah, Wood Frogs are one intense frog, and they are pretty attractive too.

Wood frogs are great, the only amphibian I can find around here, save Bufo.

That left one's coloration is interesting. Almost like a brick red. My biology teacher just found a pink morph P. cinereus, very rare and cool.
