Among the fauna found are rodents, lizards, frogs, turtles, fish, rabbits, bears, canids, cats, ground sloths, peccaries, deer, mastodons, camels, horses and zebras. http://www.fws.gov/refuge/Hanford_Reach/Geology/Paleontology.html

           

          This tour will be in reference to the Missoula Flood and universal flood and post flood geology.
