Wildlife of El Dorado County

Shown above: California Striped Racer.I've found many different types of snakes on my property. The Striped Racer is a very elegant looking snake because he's very thin and long. He's also very fast and if found while resting in the sunshine will disappear quickly.  Click here to view another picture.

Their mother had made a nest for them in an unused fuse box.Above left: Pacific Chorus FrogThis little frog found the perfect swimming hole: inside a piece of plastic conduit.
