Florida was once a land of odd giants that eventually and mysteriously disappeared at the end of the last ice age.

Zach Zacharias will share information about giant sloths, mammoths, mastodons, giant armadillos, smilodons, giant cave bears and others. He will also bring specimens for display and touch.

Zacharias is senior curator of education at the Museum of Arts & Sciences in Daytona Beach.

The program is part of DeBary Hall’s Lemonade Lectures series. Light refreshments and lemonade will be served.
