Mammals


Many mammals make their home throughout the Folsom Lake State Recreation Area. Otter, Beaver and
Muskrats can be seen in the water and along the shoreline, foraging, fishing or simply having fun.
Skunks, Mule Deer, Rabbits, Opossum, various small rodents, Foxes, Coyotes, Bobcat, Mountain Lions,
Squirrels and Raccoons inhabit much of the woodlands. The larger carnivores prey on the smaller
mammals, birds and reptiles. And all of them will likely see you before you see them.
