Taricha torosa torosa (Coast Range Newt): Overwintering larvae

Herpetological Review
By: , and 



We present observations of overwintering behavior in Taricha torosa torosa larvae at two independent sites. We define overwintering larvae as newts that spend the entire winter season in the larval form. The winter season (December, January, and February) represents the average three coldest months for the southern California coastal region (Felton 1965. California’s Many Climates. Pacific Books. 169 pp.).
