This attraction covers more than five acres located along State Route 75 in East Tennessee. The Miocene site is dated at 4.5 to 7 million years old containing fossilized remains of an entire ecosystem of plants and animals. A series of sinkholes formed from a collapsed cave created a watering hole that drew animals from near and far. For some unlucky animals the sinkhole became a trap that preserved them as fossils for the ages. With less than 2 percent of the site excavated thousands of fossil specimens have already been recovered! You’ll discover saber-toothed cat short-faced bear ground sloth rhino alligator camel shovel-tusked elephant Eurasian badger the world’s largest collection of fossil tapirs and the world’s only near-complete fossil red panda!
