Display of early Ice Age fossils found in Ruskin

Frank Garcia's Paleo display at SouthShore Regional LibraryFrank A. Garcia is responsible for more than 30 previously undiscovered species of prehistoric animals. He lives in Ruskin, Florida.

In 1983 Frank Garcia discovered prehistoric remains in the Leisey Shell Pit near the Little Manatee River. These included saber-toothed cats, mastodons and giant sloths.

Some of his findings can now be seen at the SouthShore Regional Library in Ruskin.

Garcia also maintains a much larger exhibit at Camp Bayou Outdoor Learning Center, also in Ruskin.
