saber toothed

One of the animals to appear in relief on one of our campus buildings - the Hancock Memorial Building - next to some wolves, an elephant, and so on.  They are by Robert Merrell Gage, and represent Pleistocene era mammals found during the La Brea Tar Pit excavations (which doesn't quite explain why they're there).  Oddly, another colleague - at least, I assume he was a colleague - passed me, also waving a camera, also taking pictures of this stony wildlife.  And now we're back in Santa Fe, with our normal-sized cats ...
