Western Chuckwalla Valley & Ridge Salamander
These plump lizards are at home in rocky desert habitats in the American southwest and northwest Mexico. They are vegetarian, feeding on various desert foliage. When threatened, a Chuckwalla will wedge itself into a rocky crevice to avoid capture. This salamander appears in early spring and early fall, disappearing for most of the summer months. During and after wet weather, they forage in leaf litter for small insects, worms and other invertebrates. Can be found under rocks and logs in damp areas.
