Explore Ice Age fossil displays from 10,000 to 40,000 year old asphalt deposits, including saber-toothed cats, dire wolves and mammoths. Watch the processes of paleontology unfold every day inside the glass-enclosed Fish Bowl Lab, where scientists and volunteers prepare fossils including "Zed," a recently discovered male Columbian mammoth. Also, check out the Pleistocene Garden and iconic life-size replicas of extinct mammals depicting the life that once grew, and roamed, in the Los Angeles Basin.
