Time Machine Window: A Look Back at Ice Age Los Angeles

Take a look at Los Angeles through Ice Age lenses

La Brea Tar Pits and Hancock Park

We're all probably getting a little tired of the view from our windows, but try picturing what your neighborhood was like during the last ice age and things suddenly get a lot more interesting. Fossils from La Brea Tar Pits paint a picture of a different world teeming with megafauna like saber-toothed cats and giant sloths, surviving in a much colder and wilder Los Angeles.  Join Gallery Interpreter Tony Turner for a look out your window and into the past, a journey made possible by the amazing research and discoveries found at La Brea Tar Pits.
