|Entrance to Milodon Cave|
It is believed to have died out around nine thousand years ago, when they think the changing environment meant that it could no longer get enough nutrients in its herbivorous diet. The fossilised remains of one of them were found in the cave here some hundred years ago, although this 98 foot high and 262 foot wide home is now empty as the Milodon remains are, typically, in London. They have though have built a replica of it guarding its entrance, which Nic of course wanted a picture with.
From the cave, we continued on to Torres del Paine National Park and to the Eco Camp that was to be our home for the next six nights.
