Arboreal Salamanders
City Slickers / Urban Dwellers
Back gardens can be ideal habitat for a variety
of salamanders, including Arboreals.
Found curled up at rest, a young, brightly marked Arboreal.
It remained perfectly still while being photographed.
Living undisturbed beneath woodpiles
and cast off roofing material.
Arboreal Salamanders are at home in dark, damp places.
Emerging often during wet rainy weather and
retreating deep underground in summer.
California Slender Salamanders are common to most backyards.
These tiny salamanders often fall prey to the larger Arboreals.
