Mammoths, Mastodons, saber-toothed cats and two kids, oh my! Those two crazy kiddos had a blast at the newest Denver Museum of Nature and Science exhibit – particularly exploring the giant, ancient poo display (which makes me think we have a whole new blog theme going on here).
This story of the Snowmastodon Project is particularly interesting in that the Ice Age fossil site was unearthed near Snowmass Village, Colorado in 2010. Artifacts from the site can be viewed at DMNS along with demonstrations on how archeologists work on such a project.
After checking out the ‘Titans of the Ice Age,’ we made our way to the lab for further discovery. I was impressed with the many new features at the museum since our last visit! So, if it’s been a while or you simply have yet to get out to this vast museum full of discovery…it’s time to get out there…and into the Ice Age!
