Location  La Brea Tar Pits
Long after their lives ended, their world has changed dramatically and many of their kind have ceased to walk the Earth, they return to the black pits where their bodies lay entombed and undisturbed for thousands of years.

The La Brea Tar Pits (located in Los Angeles, CA) have accumulated a vast quantity of fossils of prehistoric animals that became trapped in them and consequently died. To this day, fossils are still being excavated, and a museum has been built around the pits.

Species shown here: La Brea stork, dire wolves, sabre-toothed cats, Teratornis, Colombian mammoth, Pacific mastodon, American camel, dwarf pronghorn, stilt-legged llama, Harlan's ground sloth, human (the only human fossil recovered from the pits). Very heavily referenced from this photo.

Happy (Early) Halloween!
