Old bones

First is a skeleton of a prehistoric horse. Cool! It's at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. I love that place.

Below is a mammoth (duh), a giant ground sloth (right) and something else in between I didn't catch the ID on.

Hi there! Thanks for sharing your photos of our paleo hall. I really like the colors you captured in the prehistoric horse photo. And - I can ID the fossil in between the mammoth and the giant ground sloth. It's a palaeolama - the fossilized skeleton of a camel. Thanks for visiting the museum - I hope you'll check out the HMNS blog sometime - our paleontologists post there about what they're up to.
