Doesn't that sound like I'm really smart? (Thank you, Wikipedia.)
We decided we'd better release the salamander, lacking confidence in our ability to forage for him.
He has great color - really amazing. He has a sporty green streak down his back that is just the color of pond scum, and his skin is actually sparkly - looks like light reflecting off of very wet mud.
Tate was holding him very carefully and gently, I have to say. He wanted to be sure to get a picture of the sparkles on his underside.
Pretty cool :0)
