Description

I'm around 80% sure that this is B. minor, since it has the characteristic robust body and short, fat tail, plus the copper coloring on the base of the thighs. The legs are also obviously longer and have more clear toes than those on B. nigriventris. That being said finding 2 (maybe 4) after only around 5 minutes of work ( < 20 logs next to the road, I didn't even need to trespass!) doesn't seem to match their description of being extremely rare and difficult to find, so now I'm second guessing my ID.

Random roadside log I flipped it under on the last slide.

I was amazed to find this Sierran Treefrog trying to make a meal of a juvenile Taricha.

When I flipped the log the newt was upside down and in the frog's mouth, but was soon let go. The frog's tongue stuck out for a few seconds afterwards, I'd like to think due to awesome tetrodotoxin.
