Montana Historical Society Homotherium Portrait & Coloration
Shown: Glacial Lake Great Falls, created by glacial impoundment and flooding in what is now central Montana.
Geologic period: Modern
Lake Great Falls was a prehistoric proglacial lake which existed in what is now central Montana in the United States between 15,000 BCE and 11,000 BCE. Centered on the modern city of Great Falls, Montana, Glacial Lake Great Falls extended as far north as Cut Bank, Montana, and as far south as Holter Lake. At present-day Great Falls, the Glacial Lake Great Falls reached a depth of 600 feet.
About 13,000 BCE, as the glacier retreated, Glacial Lake Great Falls emptied catastrophically in a glacial lake outburst flood. The meltwater poured through the Highwood Mountains and eroded the hundred mile-long, 500-foot-deep Shonkin Sag, one of the most famous prehistoric meltwater channels in the world.
