Florida Prehistoric Animals

Florida's landscape was once vastly different from what we see today. Florida’s miles of rivers and lakes made it the perfect environment for prehistoric animals such as the mastodon, mammoth, sloth, jaguar, dire wolf, saber cat, short faced bear, lion, camel, tapir, and giant armadillo. Many of the fossils left behind from these prehistoric animals exist in Florida museums for all to see.
