As an aspiring Paleontologist, i have always dreamed of having an internship somewhere in the field. So after applying to, interviewing with, and finally getting an internship at the Mammoth Site here in Hot Springs South Dakota, i am honored to have finally been here for exactly one week! My duties here include giving tours, teaching both junior and adult classes, doing lab work, and working on the site. The picture below shows my main area of work, the famous sinkhole. 26,000 years ago, this sinkhole formed and now we study the ALL male mammoths that were trapped inside. There are estimated to be about 61 mammoths in this sinkhole, around 58 columbian and 3 woolly.
