Florida Prehistory & Paleontology

The Prehistory of Florida is written in the fossils found across the state. The oldest fossils found belong to ancient ocean dwellers, which suggests that Florida was once completely submerged. More recent fossils found include saber-toothed tigers and prehistoric elephants and horses. The oldest human remains found were about 10,000 years old, indicating that the first Native Americans probably arrived in Florida at about that time.
