Yellow-Eyed Ensatina Salamanders
29 December 2006
|In wet weather lung-less ensatina salamanders emerge from their burrows
deep underground to absorb moisture through their skin.
|Lung-less and very fragile, ensatinas breathe entirely through their skin.
Avoid handling as residue on your hands may be toxic to them.
|This tiny ensatina measured less than 2-inches.|
|Skin so translucent, you can almost see through it.|
|Less than the length of my little finger, yet this brave little ensatina
arched its back defensively in an attempt to frighten me away.
