We visited the Bass Pro Wildlife Museum in Springfield, Mo. What a great place to visit. It has all types of displays. We got to see live snakes, an albino alligator, large bass, catfish, and other things. They even had a live bald eagle that had injured a wing and was not able to fly. If you ever get to Springfield, Mo., make sure to see the Wildlife Museum at Bass Pro.

This is where the Mammoth Springs begins. The springs flows at an average rate of 9.78 million gallons per hour with a constant water temperature of 58 degrees Fahrenheit. Local folklore includes the tale of an Indian chief whose son died while searching for water during a drought. While digging his son's grave, a giant stream of water gushed forth. The chief believed this spring would flow forever because his son had died searching for water.
