The Death Valley pupfish, Cyprinodon salinus salinus, is a species of fish that is the last known survivor of what is thought to have been a large ecosystem of fish species that lived in Lake Manlymarker, which dried up at the end of the last ice age leaving the present day Death Valleymarker in Californiamarker. The pupfish is adapted to the shallow, hot, salty water of a particular part of Salt Creek that flows above ground year-round, and is also sometimes referred to as Salt Creek Pupfish. A subspecies lives in nearby Cottonwood Marsh.
