The Forest Floor

Hidden under the giant redwoods, fascinating creatures lurk on the forest floor. Take time to dig under the layer of duff (leaves and needles on the ground) and see what you can find when you visit the redwoods.

The California slender salamander (Batrachoseps attenuatus) is a lungless salamander that is found primarily in coastal mountain areas of Northern California.
The northern red-legged frog (Rana aurora) is a species of amphibian, whose range is the coastal region stretching from southwest British Columbia to southern Mendocino County in Northern California.
Banana slugs (Ariolimax columbianus) are North American terrestrial slugs that are often yellow in color and are sometimes spotted with brown blotches, resembling a ripe (or overripe) banana which is the source of their common name. Photo by harbeee2017 via iNaturalist.
