A 90% complete mammoth skeleton has been discovered in family gravel pit
This unearthed Ice Age creature is 60,000-year-old! Amazing!
A family were left stunned when they discovered the skeleton on a 60,000-year-old mammoth in their firm’s gravel pit. As shown in the picture below, Perot Museum of Natural History Fossil Preparator Ron Tykoski, excavates the 90% well preserved mammoth remains found in Ellis County, Texas.
The almost perfectly preserved skeleton was found by Marty McEwen and grandson Ethan Beasley their firm’s gravel pit in Texas. According to first scientific reports, the mammoth, probably a female, was around 9ft (2.7m) tall. It is believed that the large Ice Age animal died in Ellis County after she fell on her side. For further examinations, the farmers have donated the huge mammoth skeleton to the nearby Perot Museum.
I would also like to unearth a giant mammoth in my backyard. What about you?
