Cafe Scientifique Orlando is a gathering of scientifically-inclined people in Central Florida, who meet at a cafe, coffee house, pub, or nonacademic location to discuss events and ideas in the world of science. We enjoy beer and wine, and we use plain language to talk about extraordinary ideas.
About 6 months ago, amateur paleontologists were sifting through dirt and rubble at a Daytona construction site, and discovered bones and teeth from a Mastodon, an enormous tusked mammal that died more than 13 thousand years ago and weighed several tons.
Zach Zacharias is Senior Curator of both Education and History at Daytona Museum of Arts and Sciences. He will talk about these and other mastodons, which lived during the Oligocene through Pleistocene periods.
