      Waco TX Mammoth Site - The remains of 22 Columbian mammoths were found in 1978. The site is the largest known concentration of a single herd of mammoths dying from the same event, which is believed to have been a flash flood. Fossils from a Sabre tooth tiger and a camel were also found. Great place to visit if you get a chance!
