More Pleistocene Pictures

I figured I'd post a few more pictures from the "Mammoths and Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age" exhibit for all you friends of the Pleistocene. Here's a different view of the mammoth model. We noticed lots of people wanted to pose for pictures standing right under the mammoth's tail.

Here's a head-on view of the pygmy mammoth.

Here's one for all you Homotherium lovers that gives a better view of the teeth. Connie looks on safely from behind.

Here's a bronze cast of a Homotherium cranium.

Finally, at the very end of the exhibit a volunteer technician was cleaning up some plaster-jacketed proboscidean fossils that the Museum had recovered from a dig near Holyoke, Colorado.
