In Los Angeles we have have bears, mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, rattle snakes, tons of other snakes and lizards, deer, lots of hawks, owls,bald eagles, vultures and other raptors, tons of other birds, raccoons, squirrels, possums, skunks and probably a lot I'm missing. I've seen most with my own eyes including coyotes and bobcats in urban neighborhoods. I have yet to see a bear or mountain lion ( I may have seen a mountain lion's eyes glowing in my headlamp on a night hike but not sure) but definitely seen evidence of both.

And if you want to add ocean life there are great whites and many other sharks, many whales (saw a grey and blue whale on a nature cruise a few weeks ago), tons of dolphins, seals , sea lions and other fish.

Oh yeah - I forgot the vultures. I LOVE vultures, especially the black-headed ones. They're smaller than the turkey vultures, but a whole lot meaner! I've got a whole flock of them that roost at my lakefront lot.

Here in DC, we can sometimes spot an orange-crested booby.

And I should add wild turkeys, and turkey vultures, various hawks and owls. And the usual suspects like, raccoons and opossums, rabbits and squirrels. I did see a pretty large dead beaver on the side of the road, a creek was near by but the poor guy didn't make it. I have never seen a live beaver in the wild around here, but I'm told they are here.

Uh, lots of small, brownish birds. LOL Just kidding. But it does seem like my feeders have been overtaken by cowbirds, sparrows and finches lately, with a few mourning doves thrown in. All the colorful birds seem to be staying away.

Just in our yard, deer (3 fawns at the moment), rabbits, snakes, possum, wild turkeys, tons of birds, squirrels and chipmunks.
We had one black bear wander through a couple of years back. We're in GA now, in NJ we had a lot of bears and foxes along with everything we now see in GA.
