This week we went to the La Brea Tar Pits. La Brea is one of the world’s most famous fossil localities, recognized for having the largest and most diverse assemblage of extinct Ice Age plants and animals in the world. Visitors can learn about Los Angeles as it was between 10,000 and 40,000 years ago, during the last Ice Age, when animals such as saber-toothed cats and mammoths roamed the Los Angeles Basin.

Enough of the commercial. Here are some pictures from our visit.

This first one is one of the active tar pits. You can see the methane gas bubbling up thru the water.

The reason there are so many fossils is that the animals used to try to drink the water and would get stuck in the tar and die.
