Mammoths of LA

Paleontologists at the George C. Page Museum in Los Angeles are excited! They are working on the nearly intact fossilized skeletal remains of “Zed,” a Columbian mammoth (Mammuthus columbi) that was discovered at an underground parking garage construction site near the L.A. County Museum of Art and near the famous La Brea Tar Pits. Both of Zed’s tusks were intact, which is quite rare.

Zed should go on display at the museum next year. Visitors can watch scientists cleaning the fossilized remains of Zed now.
