A small one going across the trail - it looked like a black shoelace with a red ring around its neck & moved very quickly. Too fast to get a photo.

My first one - so beautiful! It was under a rock that a naturalist leading my hike turned over. Ran off too fast for a photo. Beautiful blue tail.

Not sure if this is the same one I saw a few months ago living in my patio moat, if it is it has gotten a lot bigger! I'm hoping it doesn't eat the beautiful, tiny, Ring-necked Snake I found nearby today.

I lifted up the doormat on my patio, to check on the Arboreal Salamander that lives under a grate, in a moat, and found a beautiful little Ring-neck curled up under the mat! This was at 6 PM, PST. Very exciting and beautiful animal!

Description

This morning I saw what looked like a worm drying out on the floor, inside my house, and picked it up and discovered this adorable Slender Salamander, covered in debris, seemingly dead. But I got some movement when I picked it up, so I cleaned it off with some rainwater and placed it back out on the patio, inside a little frog house. This is the second salamander this week that has gotten into my house. It's raining so much here in Marin County that it's even too wet for salamanders I guess!
