Description

Larvae. Been looking for these for many winters! They lay eggs in the fall when the vernal pools are dry, the the young hatch when the pools fill in winter. They cam live under the ice until spring, when all the other animals show up, and they are massive badasses who eat everyone.

This wasn't exactly a true vernal pool since it was partially stream fed, but there was very little flow and clearly very tanic. The presence of an adult newt was a bit troubling, suggesting it might not be ephemeral, but I don't know what other salamander would be this well developed in December.
