Larval California Giant Salamander hidden among the aquatic rocks in Armstrong Woods State Reserve. It was found by scanning all of the crevices in the rocks in a clear, shallow pool with my binoculars. This photo was taken from closer to the creek as the salamander slowly moved out of its retreat.

Just saw this one (but only searched briefly), which was about 2.5" snout to vent. Creek not flowing, but is pooling, then disappearing underground sporadically.

I know, terrible pics (fast water & reflections were challenging). But wanted to document these 2 larvae - 3" & 2", head to tail, respectively. Creek flowing, pooling & going underground sporadically.
