On baseball field
can't find my field guide, has the body shape and shape of markings, and size for a tiger salamander, but I'll admit I don't know if it needs to have yellow...looking online now, it looks like a giant california salamander. thoughts? How small are its eggs? we moved a board and found it, and also some eggs, that seemed too small (like 1 mm diameter) but maybe not, maybe I shold move them to under the new board location?
