MOW - I believe the little fellow might be a 'red eft' - a life-stage of the common Rough-skinned Newt. A lot of these newts (once called the Western Newt) enter the terrestrial 'eft' stage after the larval (tadpole) stage for years before metamorphosizing into the final adult stage. I came across one years ago hiking with a guy who is a biology teacher who explained this to me!
