California slender salamander (Batrachoseps attenuatus)

As the common name implies, the California slender salamander (Batrachoseps attenuatus) has a narrow head and body, enabling it to easily burrow through underground tunnels. This lungless amphibian, which breathes through its thin skin, is California's most common salamander.
