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?

  1. I could care less about a skeleton. There are far more important things to focus on in this world. The only thing from the past we need is the collective wisdom from our ancestors. The only thing that comes out of digging up bones is sensationalism, thrill, or prestige. It doesn’t pay my bills. It doesn’t make my life any better. If anything, finding bones in someone’s backyard has often ruined some lives. The bones are in the ground. Leave them there.
