This talk will feature the kinds of native mammals that lived in Florida during the Ice Ages and then became extinct about 10,000 years ago. Florida is home to a rich fossil record based on more than 1,000 localities and sites throughout the state. These included mammoths, mastodons, horses, saber-toothed cats and the like. We will also discuss what it is like to go on a fossil dig in Florida and why these native mammals are no longer with us.
