What Did You Do This Weekend? Did You Dig Up An 11,000 Year-Old Michigan Mastodon?
Back in 2014, Seth Colling saw something he thought was a piece of firewood, in a creek, in the Thumb area of Michigan. According to WZZM13.com, the "firewood" turned out to be the fossilized leg of an 11,000 year old mastodon. This past weekend, Seth and scientists and grad students from the University of Michigan, along with teachers from schools in the Thumb, started digging out the rest of the skeleton. Scientists believe the bones Seth found belong to a male mastodon, in his mid-30s and not quite fully grown when he was taken down by ancient hunters.
So, in effect, Seth found an ancient Michigan hunting camp. Where are "Da Yoopers" with a song about this?
