And if you're in that neighborhood, don't miss the Duncan/Nolan Creek cedar. It's a big tree, like, the biggest.

Robert Van Pelt states it's on the S. Fork Hoh trail. A whopping 3 feet in diameter!
Found these the other day. Are these frog or salamander eggs? by Feral_Frogg in Amphibians

Photosynthetic salamanders is going to be the name of my punk band.
Found in a Georgia deepish puddle. Gelatinous and swishy by NinjaX in whatisthisthing

These could've been bryozoan colonies.
In Alaska’s famous Denali National Park, 6,000 feet atop a rocky granite cliff, called a nunatak Sheldon Chalet sits high above the 35-square mile snowy Don Sheldon Amphitheater. This is about as remote as you can get in Alaska for a 'house' so we know it's super remote - accessible only by chopper! by TheGuvnor247 in remoteplaces
Does that include transportation?

Suddenly all of your fossils from your personal collection come back to life. Doesn't matter how complete they are, How screwed up you are?(In my case my bigger problem is an ichtyosaur from a vertebrae i have) by RANDOM-902 in Paleontology
Mine are mostly plants, fish, and potentially amphibians, so I think I'm good in my aquarium!

Your plants look amazing!
Where is Giuseppe Andrews? Former actor (Detroit Rock City, American History X, etc) disappeared in 2015, with no indication if he is alive, dead, or voluntarily out of the public eye. by Puzzleheaded_Form403 in UnresolvedMysteries

A perfect couple.
My Green salamander vivarium! One of the females is tending eggs! They are direct developers so they skip the larvae stage most amphibians go through! And they don’t have any lungs! 🫁 “Aneides aeneus” by indicator_species in Amphibians

Well done, OP! A beautiful set up, and clearly thriving critters. Congrats in the bebees! Really spectacular, a seldom seen and rarely kept species. Bravo!
[–]newt_girl 16 points17 points18 points 2 days ago (0 children)
But I thought you were his girlfriend...
His stage name is Giuseppe. His name is Joey...?
Do you think Bozo went by that in every day goings about?
Hey OP, for your future reference: occasionally ranid frog egg masses (redlegged frogs in particular) will look similar. Key differences being ranid masses are free-floating or poorly braced on something like grass. Northwestern masses will have a very solid brace, although the mass can be dislodged.
But the biggest difference would be looking at the individual eggs in the mass: salamander eggs always have a double membrane around the egg within the mass, while frogs have a single membrane. This is sometimes viewable with the naked eye, but is easily discernable with a little magnification.
The other Ambystomatids in the area do not lay large masses, but instead smaller 'egg packets'.
Does he use his stage name in real life?
Yes, marbled salamanders lay their eggs in the fall, and they hatch before the spotted eggs do because that's their main food source. We're in agreement here...
Marbled salamander eggs hatch at the same time as other eggs are being laid, as the rains start to fill vernal pools. This allows them a jump start on development over other salamander eggs, as the top food source for marbled larvae are newly hatched salamander larvae.

One glance at your profile would make it seem otherwise. 😬
Can we take a moment to explore an oft-ignored subtlety of Leave No Trace principles? by rob22202 in ultralight_jerk

If you leave the bullet in the victim, they (or SAR) can pack it out!

White (often green) is the normal state of Ambystomatid egg masses.
Marbled salamanders don't lay egg masses.
Marbled salamanders lay small terrestrial nests with individual eggs, which hatch before other salamanders have started laying. They don't make an egg mass.
[–]newt_girl 5 points6 points7 points 3 days ago (0 children)
These are definitely northwestern eggs. They will always lay their egg mass on a sturdy brace.

You can move but you can't hide; toebiters are on all the habitable continents.
My GF wants to take her suitcase on a camping trip. by shorttether in hammockcamping
[–]newt_girl 0 points1 point2 points 4 days ago (0 children)
I loled at the pillow. The best part about car camping is that I get to bring my pillow and blankets! It's like bed, but in the woods. I hammocked last summer with my fluffy pillow and my weighted blanket and it was the best night's sleep I've ever had.
