Meet the coolest predator around.

 Step back into the last Ice Age and come face-to-face with a snarling, prowling saber-toothed cat at the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits. He is the world’s first full-suit animatronic, prehistoric cat performing for live audiences.  In a unique collaboration, paleontologists and performing artists from the National History Museum and puppet engineers from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop (creators of Where the Wild Things Are and Dino Train) have created a jaw-dropping adult Saber-Toothed Cat (Smilodon fatalis) that you will never forget.

These 15 minute special performances are scheduled for 11 am, 12:30 pm and 1:45 pm each day on:

 Sunday, June 10

Tuesday, June 19

Saturday, June 23

Sunday, June 24
