La Brea Tar Pits
The La Brea Tar Pits, also known as the Rancho La Brea Tar Pits, are a group of tar pits in the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles that have existed for tens of thousands of years. Natural Tar has continuously seeped up from the earth forming pools of tar that are often covered by water or natural debris. Over tens of thousands of years, animals have become trapped in the tar and their bones have been preserved. Among the excavated findings are the remains of a saber-toothed cat, an American lion, several bison, and a Columbian Mammoth. The George C. Page Museum, part of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, was built next to the La Brea Tar Pits in Hancock Park. The museum has the bones of numerous prehistoric animals assembled and on display. The museum, which is on Wilshire Boulevard, is a California Historical Landmark and is definitely worth visiting.
