With an area of 411,000 kmÂ² it is the third largest state in the U.S, and it is also the most populous. Most major cities are located along the seacoast along the Pacific, notably Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, Santa Ana/Orange County, and San Diego. The capital, Sacramento is in the Central Valley. California has wildley varied geography and wild animals. In the center of the state lies the Central Valley, a huge, fertile valley bounded by the coastal mountain ranges in the west, the granite Sierra Nevada to the east, the Cascade Range in the north and the Tehachapi Mountains to the south. Mountain-fed rivers, dams, and canals provide water to irrigate the Valley. The warm Central Valley is California's agricultural base, and a large portion of America's food comes from this area. The San Joaquin Valley to the south is largely desert land. The state animal is the California grizzly bear, the marine animal the Gray Whale, state bird California Quail, state butterfly California dogface butterfly, state fish Golden Trout; marine - Garibaldi, state flower California Poppy, and the state reptile is the Desert Tortoise.

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.
Example California Wildlife Problem Emails:
To whom it may concern: There seems to be a family of coyotes living near Burbank Blvd and Pass Ave in Burbank, CA. I have been confronted by at least one of them three times in the past three weeks in the early morning. It has ran away every time but it seems to get closer and closer to me each time. Just the other day I noticed it run after a bicyclist, then run back into the shadows. Is there a free way of relocating the coyotes? None of the neighbors want them killed, just relocated back into Griffith Park.

California Wildlife News Clip: Wildlife - Birds, fawns, and rats living on the wild side in California. California refuge shunning public for good of its guests
California - Sarah Raccoon's "kids" are wild, unnamed and untamed - and until they leave home, she intends to keep it that way. The "kids" are the fawns, raptors, squirrels and just about any other injured wild creature brought to the Rose Wolf Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center at Raccoon's home just outside Los Angeles. California has an abundance of wildlife, and Los Angeles is no exception.
"I don't name the animals simply because they aren't my pets," Raccoon said. "The whole point is to put them back into the wild if we can. I try to minimize my contact with them just so they will stay afraid of humans and have a better chance of survival." Although several species of wildlife roam California, only a few, such as raccoons and squirrels, are considered pest wildlife.
Raccoon, a former San Jose resident, moved full time in February to the 88-acre property near California City that she and her husband, Bernard, bought six years ago. She said she began wildlife rehabilitation work 10 years ago as a volunteer with the San Jose Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley. California has many reptiles, and it's important to be able to identify California snake species and mammals.
"I answered an ad back then looking for volunteers to feed baby birds," she said, "and I was hooked." The California center, which survives on volunteer work and donations, includes a feed barn donated by the Chicken Ranch Rancheria near Sacramento. It was founded 10 years ago by Nina Huff, a California County woman who has retired from animal rescue work and who named the facility out of her fondness for roses and wolves, Raccoon said. Remember to treat the wild animals of California, California, with respect.
