What do mastodons, mammoths, cave bears, giant sloths, giant beavers, and saber-toothed cats have in common? They’re all animals of the Ice Age…and they’re all big…REALLY BIG! Imagine the size of a dam created by a beaver that is 8 feet long from nose to tail. And when we think of sloths, we usually picture a cute little critter, hanging from a tree branch…but not when they’re 10 feet long! Smiledons, commonly called saber-toothed cats, with their 7 inch fangs and weighing in at up to 600 lbs would be truly fascinating…and intimidating…as they prowled the forest in search their next meal. And mammoths, well, they were truly mammoth in size! Just why were these animals so big? Learn the answer when you join us for the newest Creation Adventure workshop, Cool Critters of the Ice Age.

With Buddy’s engaging style and witty stories, families will enjoy discovering the truth about these “cool creatures” through solid, biblical teaching. You will also learn what caused the Ice Age after Noah's Flood. The final portion of the workshop is spent sculpting a saber-toothed cat, guided by Buddy, who sculpted just about every dinosaur found in the museum. Come “chill out” with Buddy Davis and learn about the Cool Critters of the Ice Age on your next visit to the Creation Museum.

This program is designed for the whole family to enjoy. Tickets are $3.50 with museum admission; Members and Passholders receive a 10% discount off on-site purchases. Purchase your tickets in advance by calling Reservations at 888-582-4253 ext 355 or buy online.
