Sunday Stroll: If you really want to get stuck try the 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.
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.

Saber Tooth versus Giant Sloth. Wonder who would have won.
