Couch's Spadefoot Toad (Scaphiopus couchi)recorded in Algodones Dunes September 25, 2014 on a Droid phone.
The very first salamander I have ever seen in the valley. This will be an area of interest for the population of these guys. Sorry for the horrible pictures.
The only one I was able to get a picture of.
