I don't know what type it is but it looked like a dog tick. I was just sitting down and was actually on iNat when out of the corner of my eye saw something walking. Sorry for the horrible picture. It wouldn't stop moving and this was the best out of the 20 pics.

Description

I believe this Myotis lucifugus. Sorry for the horrible pictures the zoom was doing terrible. But it was a dark brown almost black and only about 3 inches long. I think it has rabies because it has not moved from that spot since midday on Monday and I am posting this observation on Tuesday 2/17/15.

This has to be the world's cutest and smallest salamander. Honestly I have seen juveniles but they have not been this small. He wasn't even half an inch. I saw his tail and thought he was a worm but the saw legs and I just had to get some pics of him.
