This part of Alma Bridge was recently repaved. This newt was adhered to the road, and the line-painter seems to have gone right over them. After peeling the newt from the road, their shadow remains, a long-term reminder.

This observation is part of an ongoing study of the Pacific Newt roadkills on Alma Bridge Road, Lexington Reservoir.
