15. You'd be surprised...
At the sort of animal life you can find even in an urban environment after the lights go out. I've seen deer in downtown seattle, and of course you have the regulars - opossoums, raccoons, skunks, bobcats, coyotes... I've even heard that some cities have otters and beavers.

Nature is constantly working to undo "civilization" and frankly, we're reaching the stalemate point.
