Those poor animals, but what a great place to find bones! I took my first trip to the La Brea Tar Pits today on a CAVA field trip. It was pretty cool! It’s weird to think there were mastodons and saber tooth cats roaming around LA about 10,000 years ago! And 6-foot tall sloths that walked on their knuckles – creepy! I learned a lot, thanks to our docent, Walter, and the Page Museum.
