Wow! What a shiny orange! if it was a frog,i´m sure it would be very poisonous......

I love these red efts! They're so pretty. We don't get many salamanders around my area. (More than likely because we have five cats. That tends to cut down the population of small, fun-to-catch animals like frogs and toads.)
