Ice Age Oasis

Wild New World Episode 3 of 6

Thousands of years ago, the first people to visit Florida were not greeted by holiday theme parks but by giant ground-sloths with fearsome claws, and armoured glyptodonts, the size of a small car. And did the most notorious prehistoric predator of all, the sabre-tooth cat, finally meet its match in a skunk?

This dramatic new series reveals the spectacular wildlife of Ice Age North America, as the first people to enter this vast continent would have seen it. Evidence uncovered from today's landscapes is used to build a picture of the prehistoric past.
