|A hadrosaur skull similar to Saurolophus, the first dinosaur ever found in California|
|Two fossils here, but one of them isn't quite dead yet. The other is a Mosasaur|
Fossil Discovery Center in the Madera area a few miles south of us has the best collection on display of these animals. The animals include the sometimes terrifying Short-faced Bear, Saber-tooth Cat, American Lion, and Dire Wolf. The grazers included a number of species of horse, camel and antelope, as well as mammoths and giant ground sloths. Many other smaller animals have been found in the quarry at Madera (which doubles as the sanitary waste disposal pit).
