If you look closely along the creek, you might be able to spot the California slender salamander, our area's most common salamander. They are active on the ground surface from fall to spring then seek out burrows to hibernate in during the summer months. They forage under leaf litter for small mites, spiders, and snails and hide from larger salamanders, snakes, and scrub-jays. If they are caught by the tail, it will detach from its body and grow back over time.
