Hike: Redwoods in Novato? See for yourself!

This is great California newt habitat so watch your step to avoid injuring one. Two species of newts in Marin have orange bellies, and both have toxins to protect themselves so they amble along without much fear of predators. The neurotoxin tetradotoxin is the same toxin found in puffer fish. While the rough-skinned newt is more toxic, California newts still have enough of the toxin to kill a person foolish enough to eat one.
