Sunday Stroll: If you really want to get stuck try the La Brea Tar Pits

La Brea Tar Pits

Right next door to LACMA, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, is a place where one can get a really sinking feeling.

La Brea Tar Pits

It's the La Brea Tar Pits and Page Museum.

Where you can see Saber Tooth Cats,

Mammoths, and all kinds of animals that were here but aren't any more.

What makes this museum rather interesting is it is very active in that they are almost always excavating right outside. So over time new finds will make their way to be displayed. The number of different animals and the vast amount of bones and more that have been found makes this a rather important place too. So keep looking to see more.

One bird that is still around is the Condor. Still impressive.

Dire Wolves use to roam the land.
