Connecticut has no direct ocean coast, despite people in the state having easy access to the Atlantic Ocean. Instead, the region is heavily forested with broad-leaved trees and a spattering of coniferous woodlands. The state is relatively small when compared to the others in the nation, but it does have a hilly, mountainous region in the northwest. The climate consists of warm summers and cold winters, with the humidity and moisture content tempered by the Atlantic Ocean. While there is no direct coastline for the ocean, the state sits on the waters of Long Island Sound and Block Island Sound.

The wildlife in Connecticut is consistent with many of the regions in the Northeast. Black bears are the largest, potentially carnivorous animals in the state, though the bears tend to busy themselves with raiding bird feeders, eating berries, or digging for insects. Black bears can become troublesome, especially near campsites or in areas where people aren't able to secure food or trash. Aside from the black bears, coyotes lead the predator list in Connecticut. There are no breeding populations of wolves or mountain lions, though both of those large predators were in the area centuries ago.

The large grazing animals have remained, and Connecticut has moose and deer, but no elk. The state is also home to lemmings, a tiny creature made notorious for trips to the ocean where it drowns itself. This myth about the little animal is not accurate; lemmings will migrate and sometimes attempt to cross water where some drown from the stresses of swimming, but they don't cast themselves into water for no reason. The Connecticut lemming, however, does not leave the state, and does not participate in what people dubbed "mass suicides".

Other creatures thriving in the forested region are raccoons, skunks, porcupines, gophers, woodchucks, rabbits, bats, foxes, minks, opossums, rats, otters, beavers, and weasels. All of these animals have grown bold from living next to mankind for years, and any one of them can be a potential pest animal.

Because Connecticut does sit on the water, it also has a variety of marine animals. Harbor seals and manatees are common in the waters around the state. Lizards, salamanders, and lungless salamanders are also frequent sights. A lungless salamander takes in oxygen through its skin rather than through traditional lungs.

Waterbury Wildlife Tip
What To Do When A Rodent Home Is In Your Home - Rodents in your home can cause many problems that you may not be aware of for some time after you have dealt with the infestation. Tell-tale signs of unwanted visitors in your home may include associated noises of scratching, and even gnawing. If you suspect rodents have taken up residence in your home you should take steps to observe their comings and goings - usually first thing in the morning. This will confirm your suspicions and enable you to confirm the routes they are using. As the rodents enter and exit your home you should be able to identify their favorite route. This will be your targeted area for trapping.

Once you have established the favored route of the rodents you should place a trap, unset, by the entry, with some appropriate bait just outside. Leave the unset trap in place for a few days before moving the bait inside and leaving it for a further day or two. While the rodents are becoming accustomed to the trap take the time to ensure that your home is rodent proof - correctly seal and block every entry and exit way you have discovered the rodents using, leaving the single entry open. Once you have done this you can set the trap and wait to catch and deal with your unwanted visitors.

Wildlife endangers Waterbury project

The Conservation officer has since cited ways in which the developers failed to meet those standards. On Thursday, Wild Project Developer declined comment on The Conservation officer' review. Connecticut has an abundance of wildlife, and Waterbury is no exception.

"At this point, let the record speak," Wild Project Developer said. Conserve Sherman, an ad-hoc residents' group formed to preserve the town's "rural character," asked The Conservation officer to review the application. Although several species of wildlife roam Waterbury, only a few, such as raccoons and squirrels, are considered pest wildlife.

The site, which has three vernal pools and steep slopes, is located off Route 39 on the New York side of Anderson Road. Group member Jess Beed said Thursday it is not so much against the project but wants to protect the area's habitat. Connecticut has many reptiles, and it's important to be able to identify Waterbury snake species and mammals.

Commission said the potential presence of the bog turtle and the big-eyed newt, both on Connecticut's list of endangered and threatened species, must be "properly investigated" Remember to treat the wild animals of Waterbury, Connecticut, with respect and care.

Waterbury is a city located in New Haven County, Connecticut. It has an approximate population of about 107,000 people, making it the 5th largest city in Connecticut. The nickname of the city is the "Brass City" because of its motto, which is "Quid Aere Perennius" and it means "What is More Lasting than Brass". For many years the city was in financial distress due to the poor and criminal management of the mayors of the city, Joseph Santopietro and Philip Giordano, who both served jail sentences for their crimes. The city is also the home of the Post University and the regional campus of the University of Connecticut.
