newt tracks

20160319_150046 v1CA newt (Taricha torosa) tracks in soft muddy silt / Tilden Reg Park, Alameda County CA

You can see in this photo a great example of the understep walk that these awesome little creatures move in, with the five-digit rear feet landing just behind the four-digit front feet. So cool to see them walk. Note also the tail drag in the middle.

    very cool newt tracks!

    The Eval group at the dune slack seems to have had a hard day. I guess it rained all day out there. js
