Ice Age Fossils Return Home To Nevada

Thousands of fossils from Nevada that date back to the ice age made their return to Las Vegas this week after spending the last decade in Southern California.

The Las Vegas Review Journal reportscrews from UNLV and the Las Vegas Natural History Museum returned from Redlands California on Saturday with more than 20,000 specimens that were originally found near Tule Springs.

The fossils include several 6-foot-long mammoth tusks, a complete bison skull and the fossilized bones of extinct horses, camels and saber-toothed cats that once roamed the area.
