Extinct Texas Animals event set for July 16 at Museum of Coastal Bend
Extinct Texas Animals

The Museum of the Coastal Bend will provide guests an opportunity to learn more about the animals that roamed the area thousands of years ago when it hosts Extinct Texas Animals from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 16.

Visitors can participate in several activities to get a glimpse of unique animals such as mammoths, sabertooth cats and giant sloths that once called Texas home during the Pleistocene Epoch, which ended approximately 11,500 years ago.

Guests will be able to engage in a simulated mammoth hunt by throwing spears at a life-size mammoth target, make crayon rubbings of skulls from animals that lived in Pleistocene Texas and learn from the Tree of Life about how some of the extinct species are related to creatures that thrive today.

Victoria College professor Matthew Weiler will speak on paleobiology – the study of ancient life – and display skull replicas and other materials.

Admission for the event will be pay-what-you-want and free for museum members.
