What better way to excite junior paleontologists than to let them see real animal fossils where they have laid for 65,000 years? Discovered in the bank of Waco's Bosque River in 1978 by two young men, the bones of 23 Columbian mammoths, a camel, and a saber-tooth tiger were uncovered and added to the National Park System as a National Monument in July, 2015.
