Mammoth Site & Reptile Gardens

Mammoth Site
By: Ysabela Golden
I liked the Mammoth site because it’s an active dig a museum and a tour all under one roof! Guided tours are 30 min. long and very easy to understand. The tour guy spoke into a microphone that we could listen through with phones that were connected to the microphone. I learned they only found male mammoths because they were in bachelor herds and didn’t know better. The Mammoth site has paleontologists come in for a week and the rest of the year prepare the things they dug up for display. The Mammoth site is 60 feet deep and from every time they work on it through all the years only 30 feet has been dug up. Also the Mammoth site doesn’t cover all the fossils! There’s a lot more land that needs to be covered! The Mammoth site awesome in every way! Bye!

Reptile Gardens by Xavier Golden
Rapid City, South Dakota

Places: Gift Shop, Sky Dome of Reptiles, and the Reptile shows

I liked the snake show and the alligator show. The snake show was first. They were cool. They had Rattle Snakes. The Gift shop was cool they had rubber band guns.

The Rattle Snake was cool and the other snakes. There was a man there he was handling the snakes. Their were a King Cobra, Python, half grown Boa Constrictor, cotton mouth and more.
