Alafia River Preserve And A Crypto Museum

I went to this wild area in Polk county Florida Friday. I have not been there in 15 years. I grew up in Mulberry which is in the heart of "bone valley" and the phosphate mine capital of the world. Florida was once a sea floor for 10 million years. After Florida dried out, it was flooded again leaving what is Polk, Hardee, Lake and Highland counties as a massive island. This trapped land animals such as the woolly mammoth, saber tooth tiger, ground sloth and rhinos! When they began digging the mines a century ago, they started finding strange bones. Today there is the Mulberry museum with the fossil record on display. This is important to the crypto world because it shows that animals were found that should not have been in Florida. Scientist did not have a clue.
