Are there any spots near the beach where I can fine Herps in Los Angeles South Bay Area?

Thank You!

I think they generally avoid salt water.

Obviously I can't say localities, simply because I've never been there, but I'd imagine you could find some things by either walking away from the direct coastline of the beach and try to find an edge habitat (Area where two different habitat types meet) and go from there. You also could try to find things basking on/in/around rocks or plants away from areas with a lot of human disturbance. When I visited Israel (A whole different region, I know), I did spot several agamas and tracks of snake species nearby to the beach, although they were much more wary than usual. That's my two cents really, hope it helped!

I would say look it depends on the target species. Look under pieces of trash, boards and tin. Not much for amphibians, but you could find rattlesnakes, cali kingsnakes, nightsnakes, maybe even some banded geckos.
