These little creatures are everywhere! Come see some of these amazing species that call White Tank Mountain Regional Park home.

Arthropods, creatures with exoskeletons, segmented bodies and jointed appendages, are abundant and active throughout the year within the park. Arthropods include mites, ticks, scorpions, spiders and insects.  In fact, 84% of all known animal species are Arthropods!
