Mark Merlino - Home page

A Black Bear, these large but playful
creatures are very common in the south
coast.
Tree Frogs are noisy
residents of the forests. But
their songs give character to
the forests, especially at night.
The Deer is a typical animal you
can see in the forests of the south
coast.
Cougars are the top
predator of the forest.
They mainly eat deer,
but also other smaller
animals.
Garter Snakes also are
common. They are
toothless and harmless
and like to bask in the
sun.
Wasps are common
insects, especially on
sunny days in the summer.
