A newt I found while in Geyserville awhile back.
My friend found this and sent me a photo wanting to know what it was. I told him and when he found out it was one of the most poisonous animals in the world, he thought he was going to die. I reassured him that just as long as he didn't eat(which he didn't) he would be fine.
In Sonoma Creek.
The California newt or orange-bellied newt, with scientific name Taricha torosa, is a newt found mainly in California, Western North America.
