Sorry for bad photos, wasn't expecting to find anything. It was an unplanned side-of-the-road rock flip and I didn't have my camera. Area is Southwestern Pennsylvania.
That being said, can anybody help me ID this salamander? Was pretty big, 7-10" and more pink than anything I've seen around here, that size.

It's really difficult to see the salamanders clearly, Melissa, but in the last photo I can make out that it's one of the Dusky Salamanders (Desmognathus). Definitely not a Hellbender.
