Spotted salamander larvae......
Found adults mating in the pond back in early March. Saw 3-4 massive egg masses. I’ve seen dozens of these guys now that they are getting larger. They especially like to come out at night.
I have seen the size of the slugs you get out in the howe rainforest very impressive. My worst yeah really shouldn't have stepped there moments is a toss up between three times cant deside which was the worst. The 18 inch squegee that came up and slaped me in the side of the head splitting my tooth i passed out and woke with my face stuck in the water based urethane i had been installing to a new hardwood floor.
Or the yellow jacket hive i stepped in and twisted my ankle to wear i could barely run of corse it had to be my right foot hoping on my left is like watching a drunk walk a straight line it just doesn't work well .
Or was it the 30 penny 1800 home i was working on when i jumped off the ladder the last 3 steps and landed right on that mother of a nail that came all the way through my foot. Worst part wasnt the fact it was still in a 2x8 about 10 feet long trying to get that off was rough it was the tetanus shots and the draining required a few days latter.
