About This Blog

L.A. freeways aren't just the bane of commuters. Local wildlife of every size and species are constrained by the region's vast road network, from lizards to wrentits to mountain lions. Here, we'll tell the story of L.A.'s real stars: the urban wildlife that adapt, and in some cases, thrive in one of the world's biggest cities.
