    Still working on photo's from my recent trip to Taiwan, but took a few other images today, the first day my photo site has been up and running in two weeks (a very difficult DNS change:frown: ).


    Here is a link to a range map:

    http://darkwing.uoregon.edu/~titus/herp/vehiculum.html, site also contains natural history.

    I am very lucky to live near Portland, Oregon and have a .75 acer wooded lot near a state park with a stream. I have at least four species of salamanders living on my property. My rule is not to remove for images, I always image them where I find them. Just touching an amphibian for a short period of time (say five minutes) can do their systems harm.

    These guys are very cute and very, very common on my property.

    Tamron 90 & SB800.
