Looks like an eastern newt [Notophthalmus viridescens] in it's red eft or terrestrial juvenile stage.

If this were 4chan they'd probably have used the newt plus the rocks of the sidewalk combined with moisture to triangulate your exact location.

I learned a long time ago that these are very susceptible to pollution, if you see alot of these it means the environment is healthy.

Yup. The only place I recall ever even seeing them was in the blue ridge mountains. The maps say they should be native to my area and despite some 15 years in the area had never seen one. See spotted salamanders very rarely though.

This is the first one I have seen that looks red, but I suspect there is a group breeding around here.

I wish but he is long gone. I watched and he walked off into a densely wooded area. Probably sleeping.

The salamander was also out on a run. In an alternate universe, he posted a pic of you on voat.

The whole limb of a salamander or triton will grow again and again, after amputation. Many amphibians possess regenerative powers.
