Salamander Season is Coming!

It’s one of my favorite times of the year and one of my favorite animals. For the most part they live mysterious, unseen, secretive lives. But if you creep around enough damp places and turn over enough rocks and logs you’re treated to a wildlife wonder:

Although you can see them just about all year round here 60 – 70 degree spring weather is ideal. Sometimes you come upon a real bonanza like the little clutch of red backed salamanders. One of our biggest is the northwest brown salamander reaching almost a foot in length. The big guys are one of most secretive species, however. But as you can see everybody loves salamanders!
