Perewitz critter?

Last night I went to parents garage at their house to get something before I went to my house. I was a little, i guess annoyed... When what to wondering eye should appear... a yellow spotted salamander!!

This may sound silly but there is some history with those guys! When we were little we used to always catch them. At first I was a little nervous to pick one up because they are MUCH bigger than the regular salamanders that we would catch but after my dad insisting that they wouldn't bite I soon couldn't "pat" and "hold" them enough!

Anyway it made my day to see one of these four toed critters because they don't seem to be around anymore. I know when we were little we would go searching for them and usually find one maybe two but I can't remember the last time I saw one... although Im not really searching for them...
I made Jeff take my picture after he called me a geek several times, so I could share the Perewitz critter with you.

Cool. I haven't seen one of these for a couple of years. Last time I did, I grabbed it by the tail and picked it up. Id dropped off of it's tail, and all I had was a squirming tail in my hands. I freaked! Gross.

My wife who also blogs, refers to me as Mr. Motorcycle on her blog. Thus the coined name Mr. Motorcycle when I started blogging. I'm Just an ex-full time custom painter, now part time custom painter for hobby who loves to ride motorcycles, blog about them, and is a HUGE fan of Dave Perewitz and the crew. Here is a related post I wrote.
