This little guy should be labeled as a reptile, not an amphibian.

It's marked as an it a salamander, or a lizard?

Hi Pamela, if you are able to crop pictures like this down to a smaller size the subject will appear better on the screen in many cases and make ID'ing a little easier perhaps. Project Noah cannot display pictures larger than 1200 pixels in either direction, and second to sixth pictures significantly less than that for most people, so they are automatically reduced in size. In the case of this spotting 600x600 would be adequate.

no, its just a crevice in the rock
