Florida is a fossil-hunter's paradise. Fossils present in the exposed rocks in Florida range from 45 million-year-old "sand dollars" to bones and teeth from the "Ice Age" sabertooth tiger, which lived in Florida just 10,000 years ago. Much of Florida's bedrock, which is largely limestone, is comprised of the shells of animals that lived in the shallow seas once covering the state. Fossil seashells abound in the banks of both panhandle and southern Florida rivers.
