I agree with a previous reviewer that the attraction is a little run down and that poor old mammoth desperately needs a session with Gok Wan. However, the gallery is perfectly acceptable and educational, although an understanding of French would be helpful. I think we were lucky in that the weather was cool and so the live animals in the outside paddocks were awake and active, particularly the Alpine goats with their incredible horns doing their impersonation of crash-dummies. How those big males manage to hold their heads up beats me. The prehistoric looking horse was also very interesting. The "aurochs" - reconstituted through selective breeding from modern breeds including Scottish Highland cattle, were also impressive although obviously not quite as massive as their extinct predecessors. (Perhaps the reviewer who found Le Thot a big disappointment needed to stop and look a little more closely.) Yes, the attraction could and should be improved but there is still plenty there to satisfy those with a modicum of curiosity and I don't begrudge paying the extra on top of my visit to Lascaux II.
