TRAPPED IN TAR
FOSSILS FROM THE ICE AGE
Between 10,000 and 40,000 years ago, imperial mammoths, giant ground sloths, and sabertooth cats roamed across the continent of North America. Like the dinosaurs that lived millions of years ago, these Ice Age creatures are extinct today. Only their fossil bones remain.
During the Ice Age, over 400 different kinds of animals lived on the grassy plain that is now Los Angeles. This book, a vicarious visit to the George C. Page Museum of La Brea Discoveries in Los Angeles, California, tells the story of the Rancho La Brea fossils and the paleontologists who excavate and study them there.
