A bird known as Titanis walleri made its home in Florida just a few million years ago. Titanis, as its name suggests, was titanic indeed-a flightless predator, ten feet tall, with a massive hooked bill. Titanis and other birds related to it belong to a group some paleontologists call the "terror birds." They were dominant land predators in South America for tens of millions of years.

Canis Dirus roamed in the Late Pleistocene age (10- 130 thousand years ago) The greatest concentration of fossil remains have been found in Florida and in excavations from the La Brea Tar Pits in California.
Imagine facing this creature who was intelligent, roamed in packs, and had teeth that were more massive than the wolf of today

CAVE BEAR

The Florida cave bear ( Tremarctos floridanus ) is a species of extinct North American bear that lived during the Pleistocene epoch. T. floridanus was widely distributed south of the continental ice sheet, along theGulf Coast across through Florida and north toTennessee, and across the southern United States to California.
The closest living relative of the Florida cave bear is thespeckeled bear ( shown in photo puzzle ) of South America; they are classified together with the huge short-faced bears in the family Tremarctinae. They became extinct at the end of the last ice age.
