Dr. Leger is a qualified geologist and paleontologist with over 9 years of experience in paleontology. 

The City of Los Angeles is working on an extension of subway lines on the west side of the city.

The crews found something unexpected... fossils.

Los Angeles has hired a team of paleontologist's to look ant anything of note found in the ground.

Since commencing in 2014 crews have found multiple fossilized remains from creatures that roamed the land over 10,000 years ago.

So far they have unearthed a partial rabbit jaw, mastodon tooth, camel foreleg, bison vertebrae, and a tooth and ankle bone from a horse.

The biggest find to date is a skull of a juvenile mammoth.
