The largest known deposit of fossils from the last ice age has been found in Los Angeles. Andrea Thomer, an excavator for George C. Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits, stands next to the prehistoric bones of an American lion, a coyote and a young horse. These and other species yet to be identified were unearthed from beneath a former May Co. parking lot on the Miracle Mile.
