La Brea Tar Pits

Description

The Asphalt Pits of LACMA were found by hapless lions, dire wolves and ground sloths 40,000 years ago. The misfortune of these bygone beasts is symbolised by life-size statues of imperiled woolly mammoths. At different excavation sites around the park, Ice Age fossils are tagged. The ground is changing continuously, but work is slow, as is the maintenance of the asphalt of the pits.
