I nearly stepped on it. It was on a sidewalk near my home.

I'm not an expert, but I think this is a black salamander (Aneides flavipunctatus). Where did you find this? If it was found in a forest or grassy area, I'd say that it's the black salamander. I'd also say that this is a baby.

Some sort of Salamander i'm positive on that, but not sure which species exactly.
