"Ice Age Fossils"

Once upon a time, Rancho La Brea or La Brea Tar Pits was only a Mexican land grant. Now a spectacular museum, the tar pits have been one of the world's richest deposits of Ice Age fossils. More than 40,000 years ago, mammoths, saber-toothed cats and dire wolves freely roamed the Los Angeles basin and became entrapped in the natural asphalt of the tar pits. During the summer months, visitors can observe the ongoing excavation from Pit 91 and get an insight into the excavation where scientists discovered the new Ice Age specimen.
