A mastodon in Florida
Tusks and more than 200 sections of a mastodon's skeleton - including several skull fragments, a couple of vertebrae, and a 2' jawbone with several teeth - were unearthed in 2011 by workers digging a retention pond in Daytona Beach (video here). The prehistoric mammal lived 120,000 years ago, weighed 4-5 tons, and stood 8-10' tall. The remains went on display at the Museum of Arts and Sciences, which began with a rare opportunity to touch them. James Zacharias, a curator at the museum, commented, "Florida's a great Ice Age prehistoric graveyard. It's amazing to think these animals ran through here."
