It is perhaps not generally recognized that more than one brea deposit dating from the Ice Age and containing remains of animals and plants of this geologic period have been discovered in Southern California. Rancho La Brea still retains the distinction of having yielded the largest and most varied assemblage of organisms, but bones, teeth and plant remains similarly preserved in tar beds are now known from near McKittrick on the western border of the San Joaquin Valley and from a third locality situated near Carpinteria, between Ventura and Santa Barbara.
