Caption: A mating ball of Coast Range Newts, Taricha torosa torosa. The grouping usually consists of one receptive female and four or more males competing for the opportunity to mate, which occurs underwater. Newts of the genus Taricha are poisonous to predators and can cause death in most vertebrates, including humans if enough flesh is eaten.
