Ambystoma macrodactylum

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)
