TITANS OF THE ICE AGE : A NEW FILM EXPERIENCE

Journey to a world lost in time and ruled by giants. Encounter some of the Earth's most awe-inspiring mammals, from saber-toothed cats and dire wolves to giant sloths and iconic mammoths that lived 5,000 years before modern civilization. See how these magnificent creatures became trapped in tar, preserved in time, and are being unearthed today. 
Titans of the Ice Age is available for schools starting September 2015.
