Description

Photo documentation is from slides made at the time the salamander was found. Selected photos are from one of the slides still in my possession.

The day and time of the observation are approximate.

I saw the same species in the park on July 3, 1980 in a hollowed-out tree, but did not take a photo.

My son photo-documented the same species in the park on 12/21/2009 at 5:36 PM. It was on a bank along a trail next to Ritchey Creek at an approximate location of 38.5506 -122.5223. His photo is included.

My first adult D. ensatus and alas, this one was quite small - maybe 5 inches. Still so cool.
