YORK, S.C. -- There’s a fascinating new exhibit at the Museum of York County, and it’s all about the animals that roamed this area during the Ice Age. 

You can travel back to the Carolina’s Pleistocene past and get an up-close and personal look at the way it was….from two million to 12,000 years ago!

Dr. Steve Fields will be your guide to answer questions and show you examples of what lived in the area during the Ice Age.

There’s even the carcass of a young mastodon plus the amazing Jefferson Sloth that’s in one of three different landscapes and scenes in time.  All of the animals you see, would have roamed this part of the United States during the Ice Age.

This morning on Larry’s Look, Dr, Fields gave us all the details about this amazing exhibit. 

He is the curator of Natural History at the Museum of York County and has all the incredible details about each animal and the impact they had at that time in our history.

For all the details, go to: www.chmusuems.org.
