Farmers Digging A Drainage Ditch To Help With The Crops And Make A Mammoth Discovery!

The woolly mammoth is a species of mammoth that lived during the Pleistocene epoch, and was one of the last in a line of mammoth species.

The woolly mammoth was roughly the same size as modern African elephants. The woolly mammoth was well adapted to the cold environment during the last ice age. It was covered in fur, with an outer covering of long guard hairs and a shorter undercoat. The color of the coat varied from dark to light. The ears and tail were short to minimize frostbite and heat loss. It had long, curved tusks and four molars, which were replaced six times during the lifetime of an individual.

Its behavior was similar to that of modern elephants, and it used its tusks and trunk for manipulating objects, fighting, and foraging. The diet of the woolly mammoth was mainly grass and sedges. Individuals could probably reach the age of 60. Its habitat was the mammoth steppe, which stretched across northern Eurasia and North America.

The wooly mammoth coexisted with early humans, who used its bones and tusks for making art, tools, and dwellings, and the species was also hunted for food.

While digging a drainage ditch in a soybean field in Michigan, two farmers found what they thought was and old, bent fence post. After closer examination, however, the two realized that their fence post was actually some sort of bone: woolly mammoth bone, to be specific.

The farmers found the mammoth’s pelvis, along with two tusks and the skull. The mammoth is said to be nearly 15,000 years old, and could shine more light on primitive human beings in this area.
