Prehistoric Florida

Before we leave the museum behind, a little taste of prehistoric Florida.

First a diorama depicting a scene of coastal Florida with a giant sloth, bison, and other critters - you might be able to pick some of them out if you enlarge the photo.

Head shot for his portfolio:

Description of the glyptodont - a giant ancestor of the armadillo:

Next time we'll see skeletons of a more modern, man-made sort: Bulow Plantation Ruins State Park.
