Today I stopped by a year round stream in the hills of Marin County that I have visited over the last 20 years. Many sightings of 2"-2.5" Dicamptodon neonates. They are easier to spot in the shallower, calmer pools of water due to less light reflection on the surface. Adults are hard to find since they are usually burrowing under giant rocks or fallen logs nearby the stream.

Very cool and great field work! I always liked this species and am happy to see pics of young ones still in wild habitat.

thanks

They look well fed and healthy. Some of the streams in Marin have amazingly high densities of ensatus larvaeThanks for sharing, glad there is still some water for them! The streams in my are all alarmingly low and many are looking terrible.
