Description

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.

Description from Wikipedia

The mole salamanders (genus Ambystoma) are a group of salamanders endemic to North America, the only genus in the family Ambystomatidae. The group has become famous due to the presence of the axolotl (A. mexicanum), widely used in research, and the tiger salamander (A. tigrinum, A. mavortium) which is the official amphibian of many states, and often sold as a pet.
