I'd never seen it in the Presidio!
Biggest one I've ever seen as well.
Brooding adult female with 6 eggs, under log in moist earth.
Ensatina with a defensive milky secretion on the tail
Ensatina eschscholtzii (commonly known by its genus name, Ensatina) is a complex of plethodontid (lungless) salamanders found in coniferous forests, oak woodland and chaparral from British Columbia, through Washington, Oregon, across California (where all seven subspecies variations are located), all the way down to Baja California in Mexico.
