I'm a student at UW in the department of Environmental Science and Resource Management. This means basically means we study the outdoors and we still get to go on field trips. Our last field trip was to study wildlife population dynamics, specifically of amphibians in local forested areas. Blah, Blah, Blah, I know :)
Anyway, I just thought I'd share a cute picture of two of the little guys we found:
The first image is of an Ensetina Salamander we found, the second is of a Western Red-backed Salamander, though a little bit out of focus. We actually found 27 of these guys, but we made sure to put them right back where we found them.
