California Newt

California Newt, originally uploaded by ParsecTraveller.

While hiking, I came across this interesting California newt, right in the middle of a relatively dry trail. The newt's eyes were surrounded by an amazing green.

The stream in the ravine 100 feet down from the trail contained many newts, as well as their young.

Anybody else seeing amphibious creatures around?

I always love these! We grew up in South America so we had all kinds of lizzards running around our gardens.

Very neat little guy! Nope, not too many amphibians around here now. Just some blue tailed skinks in the garden. They are one of my favorites since they are so colorful.
