Lizard on a Mole


This photo was taken in the Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve in Half Moon Bay, CA. The newt is Taricha torosa, or the California newt, according to my class.

I was on my first Herpetology field trip, and for this class I was using a pocket blank notebook as my (assigned) field notebook. It’s small and light and easy to handle when you’re walking around, taking photos, writing, and flipping through a guide book. It’s also a good sized notebook to paste large enough photos of any critters I take photos of. I’m using various kinds and sizes of Moleskine notebooks this semester for different purposes, and am liking their durability and lightweightedness very much!

  1. Nope, it’s a T. torosa, so the title of the post is wrong. It’s not a reptile, either, but we’re studying salamanders and newts in Herpetology nonetheless.
