Pleistocene "Ice Age" (50,000 Years Ago)
Coastal emergence caused shallow bay muds to become savannas and plains. Saddleback Mountain rose and was carved into valleys and foothills by streams. Forty-two Ice Age animal species lived in these valleys and their fossils have been preserved under Alicia Parkway and Costeau Park.

Animals with an asterisk (*) are still living in Laguna Hills today.
