The Curiosity Show Ep. 19 | Hayden the Metro Mammoth with Dr. Emily Lindsey

This month Chris visits Dr. Emily Lindsey at the La Brea Tar Pits to meet Hayden, a juvenile mammoth that was discovered during a dig for the Metro train along Wilshire Blvd. Hayden lived in Los Angeles but didn’t die in the Tar Pits, so his bones aren’t the typical “La Brea brown” color of those we find in the Pits. He’s also still got small tusks and some of his baby teeth. Remains of Ice Age megafauna are found all around under Los Angeles, revealing what the landscape was like thousands of years before urbanization.
