Hello all,

I am new here. I am a regular post-er at the FHF site, and am a resident of the eastside of Seattle Area. I have been field herping for years in the PNW, and have found some awesome creatures out there. I have, thus far, been unsuccessful with finding coastal giant salamanders. I want to photograph them up close, and observe them in the wild, but am not interested in collecting any or keeping them.


Thanks!

PNWHerper aka Filip T.

Call me obtuse, but does "locality request edited out" come across to anyone, in addition to the general flavor of the post, as a locality request?

I've looked briefly in that area, but the habitat wasn't right where I looked. On the coast and in the Oregon Cascades, I have found Dicamptodon to be stupidly common. In Idaho, the genus seems very localized but semi-common where present, but in Montana VERY spotty so far [several at one locality searched]. Make sure to find the right habitat. I've done most of my searching July to early October, when water levels can be very low [a trickle in some] in some streams, and salamanders can be found in rocky streams surrounded by forest, even if that stream is little more than puddles connected by seepage under the talus. At this time of year, I suspect water levels in the best streams might be too high and fast to be practical.

My mistake, FrogEyes. Must have missed the rules in my excitement. Better go and read them before I do something else against the rules...:confused:

I saw others posting on specific locations when reading through different posts. There are even some labelled with specific creek names. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Could not access the rules, and made the assumption based on posts by others about locality sharing being somewhat okay here. I saw some posts labelled with specific locations and perhaps got the wrong impression.

Was not intending to cause issue or be inconsiderate of the rules of engagement here.
