Family Friendly Gallery Tour: Return of the Mastodon

Free with Museum Admission

Learn what happened to the Mastodons of Staten Island!
The jumbo molar and other fossilized bones of Mammut americanum found on Staten Island tells us that these giants once called the borough home. Finds like these were wondrous for the people of the 18th and 19th centuries.

Today too, it is incredible to imagine 10,000 pound beasts roaming the boroughs of New York City. Their presence on Staten Island serves as a dramatic lesson about extinction and habitat change.

Remember the Mastodon: Diversity & Preservation is a Richmond County Savings Foundation Exhibition.
