I'm still leaning towards ensatina - the skin is quite smooth and I read somewhere that juvenile ensatinas have large heads relative to the rest of their bodies.

I've never heard of a red eft though, and now that I've spent five minutes looking at pictures served up by google, I want to see one!

Looks like an ensatina to me, too. For sure.

We found this one at the 640 m elevation on Dam Mt last Saturday. It looks similar but a little more mature. It was about 80-100 mm long.

The newt crossing sign at around the Seymour Trailway 3km marker in the LSCR is in effect.

Yeah but the newts disappeared some time ago. I used to remove them from the road fairly often and Rice Lake used to be full of them.

I was at Rice Lake 2 nights ago. There were hundreds of newts at the north east end. Firebellied Newts I'm told.

I stand corrected. That's good to know. I was sad, I though they were gone.
