My first Red-Back Salamander! Found 6 in this location. Under one large rock I found 3, one of them was in the "Lead-Back" coloration phase from what I understand. Correct me if this all gray one is a different species but it was right alongside a Red-Back and from what I read they go through a color phase that looks like this.

I should add that it looks very similar to the four-toed salamander but after reading that this is a common mistake the belly of the all gray one shows a different pattern than that of a four-toed salamander.
