Description

Very small, about 2in long or smaller. Found dead on the trail with marsh/wetland on either side. I wonder if it was a baby. Skin was dried so it's hard to tell what color it was on top, but I think mostly black everywhere else. Possibly yellow or green stripe down back?

It's a little hard to tell from the photo but I think it's a Western Long-Toed. You'll occasionally see them without a prominent stripe on the back.
