Pacific Giant Salamander swimming in a creek
Pacific giant salamander (Dicamptodon ensatus)


Whiskeytown's many perennial creeks and shaded mid to high elevation forests support a diverse group of amphibian species. The park is home to six frog and toad, three salamander, two ensatina, and one newt species. Of these, two species (foothill yellow-legged frogs and tailed frogs) are federal species of concern, and one species (bullfrog) is a highly destructive non-native invader.
