If you have an opportunity to wander around an oilfield, you might be surprised at the amount of wildlife that coexists. Condors, kit foxes, kangaroo rats, leopard lizards, mountain lions, bobcats, boars, quail, coyotes and deer are some of the inhabitants. This oilfield also has long horn sheep and free range cattle.
