Me with a Short-Faced Bear

Yesterday, i visited the George C. Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles with Gregory & Dorothy.

Since i am adopted, i have a keen interest in genealogy. I was able to see some of my ancient ancestors at the museum.

A skeleton of a Short-Faced Bear was on display. It was interesting to learn that this bear was as big as a horse, nearly twice the size of today’s grizzly bear.

The guides at the museum were very nice and mentioned that there was a bear outside on the grounds that i could have my picture taken with.

It was a great visit to the Page Museum and i am looking forward to my next adventure.
