La Brea Tar Pits. In the middle of an urban area near LA tar is coming up from the earth. Since ages animals have mistaken the black shiny lake for water. When trying to enter it they got stuck and drowned. The George C. Page museum hosts the skeletons of a sabletooth tiger and other prehistoric animals that drowned here.
