  • Mammoth Site in Hot SpringsMammoth Site in Hot Springs, South Dakota
    The world's biggest mammoth research facility is in Hot Springs at the Mammoth Site and it is here that you can visit an paleontological site that is currently active.  You will be able to see the fossils as they are found and dug up, as well as view other fossils that belong to the camel or giant short faced bear.  There is a warm spring, where animals would come to drink and then because of the softness of the nearby limestone, they would lose their footing and fall into the sinkhole.  So far, 55 mammoths remains have been discovered, along with the bear, camel, fish, wolf, prairie dog, llama and other invertebrates.  The site sponsors a visiting scientist program that lets the scientists research and visit the sites for study in their various fields of expertise.  Summer internships are encouraged so that future scientists will have the same opportunities to study and discover new fossils and remains in the area.  The internships are involved in the lab work, bonebed study and cleaning as well as conducting tours of the site.
