Salamanders

Kids found two different kinds of salamanders in the park this week.

Arboreal Salamander:





Slender Salamander:
The text of a handout for young salamander collectors:

"These are California Slender Salamanders. They are amphibians. They have no lungs and breathe through their skin. They eat small spiders, beetles, crickets, pill bugs, and snails. They catch their prey by flicking out their sticky tongue. They live in moist places, but NOT in water. Slender Salamanders are common on the coast of California. You can probably find one living in your backyard. Look under logs, rocks, and piles of leaves. They protect themselves by running away or excreting a sticky liquid. If their tail falls off, or is bitten off by a predator, it will grow back."
