As part of construction on a new West Side subway line, Los Angeles County MTA employees and paleontologists have found a collection of fossils buried just 70 feet under Wilshire Boulevard. Crews have discovered fossilized sea life that demonstrates that L.A.’s Miracle Mile neighborhood used to be a coastal climate 100,000 and 300,000 years ago. The incredible discoveries include: fossilized mollusks, sand dollars, geoduck clams, snails, Monterey Cyprus cones, a 10-foot digger pine tree limb and amazingly, a two-million-year-old sea lion’s tooth embedded in a rock. Wow, they have a subway system there?
