Science on screen: Hunting for thunder beasts and other ancient mammals in Colorado

While the Ice Age is famous for its woolly mammoths and saber-toothed cats, did you know that even stranger mammals lived in Colorado before the Ice Age? During the Eocene Epoch (55-34 million years ago), Colorado was home to thunder beasts (or brontotheres), rhinos, and an unusual multi-horned giant called a uintathere. Join Jaelyn Eberle, vertebrate paleontologist, at the Dairy Center for the Arts on June 16, at 7 p.m. for a talk about the amazing ancient mammals of Colorado. Followed by a special presentation of the animated film "Ice Age."
