Is the GRASS GREENER on the other side? With this draught we're having..... probably NOT! Explorations of Notophthalmus viridescens - Red Eft

What's over there?
When things in my Chesterfield County yard began to dry up from lack of water, the critters dependent on moisture went into deep hiding. Only a very large overturned log could reveal this little fellow now. Leaf piles and small logs are way too dry. Often after a heavy rain these little salamanders can be spotted wandering amongt the dead leaves. But not recently ;0(

Still searching!

Often we don't consider the impact of a draught on nature's little creatures.
Maybe a brown lawn is of least importance?
