California Wildlife & Nature  Towering redwoods, breathtaking beaches, low lying deserts, flowers in the concrete jungle, and the critters that call it home. #calwild @chirpchick

Thanks @rachelyiling for tagging #calwild in this awesome photo of a western banded gecko. From Western Banded Geckos are primarily nocturnal, foraging at night and hiding under a variety of objects such as rocks, stems, and other types of debris during the daytime. They are most active during the spring. The Western Banded Gecko ranges throughout the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico, closely mirroring the combined Mojave and Sonoran Deserts.

Thank you Linda (@cricket4 ) for tagging #CalWild in this beautiful photo of a blue grosbeak, one of our most colorful spring/summer visitors!

Wild red foxes 🦊Thanks @lunateege for sharing this photo and tagging #calwild Red foxes (which can also be silver or black in color) are not native to California, they were introduced here via fur farms and sport hunting. From "Red foxes live around the world in many diverse habitats including forests, grasslands, mountains, and deserts. They also adapt well to human environments such as farms, suburban areas, and even large communities. The red fox's resourcefulness has earned it a legendary reputation for intelligence and cunning." You sly foxes 😉
