Water for Tar

Model tar pit with model fossils, San Deigo Zoo San Diego, California ~ November 5, 2009
This model of one of the La Brea Tar Pits is located near where the elephants live at the San Diego Zoo. To help demonstrate how fossils are formed and found, the pool is filled with water, which then drains away to show the fossil replicas like those of the Pleistocene found in Los Angeles.
