Approx 6" in length
Creek pooling, not flowing. About 2.5" snout to vent (from what I could see).
A not-so-giant giant salamander
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.
Pacific giant salamander eating a frog!
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.
