Los Angeles Underwater, with Dr. Jorge Velez-Juarbe | Natural History Museum’s Curiosity Show

July 23, 2017

Fifteen million years in the past, all the way back to the Miocene, Los Angeles was underwater, and in this episode, we visit the museum’s Age of Mammals exhibit and meet the marine mammals of prehistoric Southern California. Our curator of marine mammals, Dr. Jorge Velez-Juarbe, tells us how they ate, swam, and fought in the waters over what would become Los Angeles.

This comes from the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. If no film or link appears in this email, go to the blog to view it by clicking on the blog title above. If the film stops & starts in an annoying manner, press pause (lower left double bars ||) to let it buffer and get ahead of you.  [Chuck Almdale]
