Mammoth Remains Found In The Everglades

Archaeologists are studying the remains of an Ice Age mammal recently found in the Everglades. Workers cleaning a canal discovered the teeth of one mammoth last month on the Seminole Tribe’s Big Cypress Reservation, First Coast News reports. Archaeologists soon found 100 other bones that may come from different species of mammoths. One of the teeth found is still intact and weighs almost eight pounds. The bones are believed to be more than 10,000 years old.

The remains of other ancient animals have also been found at the same site, including the bones of an extinct giant armadillo. The site may have been one of the few watering holes where giant animals, meat eaters, plant eaters, and humans converged.
