Love your site. Thought I’d send you some photos of the California Slender for your Amphibian section.
These guys were found in Los Gatos, up in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Thanks for your lovely image of a California Slender Salamander. Perhaps we didn’t do enough gardening yet this year, but we have yet to see a California Slender Salamander in our yard in 2009. Once, upon turning over a board, we found about six huddled together. Our garden is on Mount Washington in sight of downtown Los Angeles. It is part of an endangered California Black Walnut endangered woodland, and since our lot faces north, it stays somewhat cool and damp, providing a perfect habitat for these delicate creatures.
