Texas Bucket List – M: Mammoth Site ~ Blogging Through The Alphabet

M

Today’s place to visit – the Waco Mammoth Site. I absolutely enjoy visiting this site each chance I get. I will enjoy it even more when they begin additional excavations in the coming year or two. I can’t wait to see what else is uncovered.

The Waco Mammoth Site is part of the National Park Service. It is the site of a nursery herd of Columbian mammoths. There have been 24 mammoths have been uncovered, as well as a camel and the tooth of a baby saber tooth cat. Most of the mammoths discovered are females or a juveniles. There has been a bull mammoth identified. There is much speculation about why these animals are here and whether it was a single incident or multiple incidents that left the remains in this area.

It is really quite interesting to hear the guides talk about the possibilities and to show what they have discovered.

We have enjoyed visiting three or four times, as it is not a long drive for our family. I recommend a stop by if you have opportunity. See a couple of posts that I wrote about with previous visits and activities we did.

      Thank you so much! I feel the same way – I want to do more “experiential learning” with my girls and this is certainly helping me find some places I want to show them.
