Northwest Salamander

Pretty amazing what Spencer can find in the woods. He was so excited to find this he came running from the woods to the front yard where I was weeding with this salamander in his hands. It did make me screech a bit, I mean...I love animals of all kinds but there are a few little slimy looking things that just make me kinda jump and shiver. This thing is certainly one of them. Spencer was just so in awe over this "king sally" He said it was rare and that he was going to look at it for a minute then put it right back, and that is just what he did. I think it was about 6 inches long, yeah! a big one! We have seen these in our yard before, but it really is a rare sight, this is certainly the biggest one.

  1. That's amazing! What a cool salamander. I would love to have seen that. I just spent some time catching up on your blog. I love to read it and get a taste of life in your home. What a wonderful family you have. I miss being in your home. Thinking of you. Love, April
