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.
