DescriptionAneides ferreus (clouded salamander) inhabits the forests of western Oregon and extreme northwestern California. Although thought to be primarily terrestrial, A. ferreus has occasionally been found as high as 60 m up in trees and two recent reports suggest that it may be more arboreal than previously believed. However, it is difficult to evaluate the amount of arboreal activity by this species because almost all sampling efforts have been focused on terrestrial habitats.
