When the first American arrived in North America…
There was no one here to greet them…
20,000 years ago…
There were lions, sabre-tooth cats and nine-foot long sabre-tooth salmon,
Giant sloths, Giant Tortoises, Giant condors and Giant Beavers.
There were horses, camels, mammoths and mastodons,
A beautiful armadillo, a short faced bear, and a Dire Wolf…
