This is either a Northwestern Salamander Ambystoma gracileor an Ensatina. What do you think?
Either way it was rather a fun find while bug hunting in an old tree stump.
Salamanders are predators, most eat insects, earthworms and spiders, but some will also eat small mammals and other amphibians.
Salamanders hide in the dark, moist recesses under logs or rocks during the day, hunt for food at night. I think this evening, we rather surprised this one, as a big chuck of log fell away revealing his hideout.
