New Friend

We have a new friend in our yard. We've never, ever seen a salamander here before.

btw, did you know there's a difference between salamanders and lizards? I had a feeling they were different, but I had to look it up to confirm. Salamanders are amphibians, lizards are reptiles. Well, yea. duh, of course.

Anyhoo, i guess all the moisture from the rain we've been getting allows certain happy creatures to come out of their hiding places.

I think he's rather cute.
