Pangea Institute kicked off the summer with a bang — or in fossil terms, a “fang.” And, our fossil camp, organized for the Hillsborough Community College,  was a big hit!

At the camp, Scott Marlowe, our crptozoologist and fossil expert showed the kids a variety of shark teeth and other commonly found fossil  found in Florida. Among the fossils was a skull replica of a saber tooth cat and a real Columbian mammoth tooth that was discovered at a private dig site in Bradenton, Fl by Pangea contributer, Richard Funari of Lakeland, Florida.

Students also did a little digging on their own on a field trip to Dinosaur World where they came face to face with T-Rex and Spinosaurus life-size replicas and viewed a “Dig site” hosted by the facilities expert paleontologgists.
