About the Exhibit:

TUSKS! Ice Age Mammoths and Mastodons

September 12, 2009 - January 3, 2010

TUSKS! Ice Age Mammoths and Mastodons was a traveling exhibit created by the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville, Fla. The exhibit featured 80 fossil specimens, replicas and artifacts, along with graphic panels, murals and interactive video modules.
 
These extinct relatives of modern elephants roamed much of North America, including what would become Texas, until the end of the last Ice Age, 11,000 years ago. TUSKS! Told the story of these creatures and some of their close relatives such as horses, giant ground sloths and armadillos, and some carnivores, as revealed by fossil discoveries and paleontological study. A supplement to the exhibit will expose guests to extinct species in Texas and the Paleoindians who hunted them.
 
Visitors can experience the scientific method with hands-on activities in the Texas Archaeology Lab. They will learn how to study bones, analyze and catalog artifacts, and use math and science skills to form their interpretations.
