Point of Interest Details

Megafauna, or giant animals, roamed most of Florida. During the Ice Age, Florida was a large flat grassland. Much of the world's water was tied up in glaciers which lowered sea levels and exposed more land. More land means that there was more room for giant herbivores. Mastodons, glyptodonts, and giant ground sloths were a few of the megafauna animals. Examine the dig pits and explore the exhibit signs to learn more about these ancient animals.
