California is much more than just pristine white beaches and striking sunsets. The state, which actually has a good bit of snow despite rumors, is home to some of the most stunning landscapes in the country. As you might expect, this means it is also home to a host of interesting animals. Not only does California have dolphins and a huge population of seagulls, it also has large predators like grizzly bears. Unfortunately, because the state is such a hotspot for tourists, most of the animals in California have the potential to become pests.

There are some animals that seem to be present in almost every state, if not much of North America. Some of these critters, like raccoons, are also found in California. But while California has bats, coyotes, squirrels, rabbits, and other common wild animals, it also has some unique creatures that are not found in other areas of the country. Because of its classification as a coastal state, California must face the predicaments associated with a variety of sea lion and seal species. Most of these are shy toward people; however, the pups are common prey for larger animals like foxes and coyotes, animals that can pose a disease or attack threat to humans.

Southern California is notoriously warm for most of the year, despite the frigid temperatures and prevailing snow in the mountain regions. For this reason, many amphibians and reptiles thrive in the state. There are frogs and toads by the dozens, including the California chorus frog and the Cascades frog. There are also numerous salamanders, snakes, and turtles. The desert tortoise, the state's recognized reptile, can survive in areas with temperatures up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

As you can imagine, depending on the region of California, pest animals can appear from any species. People living near the coasts will find themselves more inundated with aquatic critters, while people in the rural mountain regions will wage war with bears and coyotes. Those somewhere in the middle will find a good number of venomous snakes, like the rattlesnake, and unlimited numbers of raccoons, skunks, and other scavengers. The most commonly removed critters are raccoons, bats, pigeons, skunks, and a variety of birds including woodpeckers, swallows, and seagulls. Like many other areas with a diverse climate, the west coast of the United States has one of the highest rates of human-animal conflict. This is not just because of the dense animal population, but more due to the dense human population that is continually growing.

Los Angeles Wildlife Tip
Rodent In Attic Has Become Lethargic-What Could This Mean? - If you have rodents in your attic and are trying to eradicate them, you may be concerned if you happen to notice they are showing signs of lethargy. Lethargic rodents may be infected with rodent poxvirus. Grey rodents rarely die from this disease since they have developed immunity to the disease - for red rodents however rodent poxvirus in generally fatal. Rodents infected with the poxvirus become increasingly lethargic and shivery but are not thought to pose any threat to humans.

Any rodents, healthy or unhealthy, which have taken up residence in your home, need to be eradicated and if they are diseased you should also take steps to ensure that any carcasses are also removed and the attic, or infected area, is deep cleaned and sanitized. The only guaranteed method of eradicating rodents is by trapping them and removing them far away from your home - if you release rodents in the locality of your home it may mean that they re-infest your home. An alternative to release is to humanely kill the rodents but many people are too squeamish to use this method. Setting traps takes a little time and detective work but is the only guaranteed method of dealing with rodents in your home. 
Los Angeles, CA Wildlife News Clip:
Wildlife - California Marine Problem no longer an Enigma

"There wasn't anything unusual about it," Lake said. Although several species of wildlife roam Los Angeles, only a few, such as raccoons and squirrels, are considered pest wildlife.

Lake said the die-off is unrelated to Red Tide and unrelated to the dead zone that's been killing wildlife during the summer offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. In fact, he said that dead zone, caused by Red Tide trapped near the sea bottom, is breaking up after Katrina stirred the gulf on its way to New Orleans. California has an abundance of wildlife, and Los Angeles is no exception.

Still, it all seemed very strange to Opossum, with 22 years of experience on the water. The DEP told him it was safe to reopen the marina, so he did. But he said fishermen had the same perception he had, that something truly odd was going on. Remember to treat the wild animals of Los Angeles, California, with respect.

"I guess there's different types of algae," he said, noting that the scientists deal with these events more routinely than he does. "They see it every day. "Still," he said, "I've never seen anything turn the seawalls black." California has many reptiles, and it's important to be able to identify Los Angeles snake species and mammals.
