Prehistoric Mammals of Florida

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.
