COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The new exhibit at the South Carolina State Museum is set in stone.

“South Carolina Unearthed” goes on display on Saturday at the museum in Columbia.

The exhibit features a number of specimens from the museum’s nationally known fossil collection.

The museum says the fossils will give visitors a glimpse of a time millions of years ago when ground sloths, long-horned buffalo and saber-toothed cats roamed what is now South Carolina. It was an era when whales swam and marine lizards lived in the ocean that covered the state form Dorchester to Darlington counties.

The fossils will be on display through next Feb. 1.
