Ice Age Image Of Mammoth Or Mastodon Found In Florida
Researchers from the Smithsonian Institution and the University of Florida have announced the discovery of a bone fragment, approximately 13,000 years old, in Vero Beach in Florida, USA, with an incised image of a mammoth or mastodon. This engraving is the oldest and only known example of Ice Age art to depict a proboscidean (the order of animals with trunks) in the Americas.
The bone was discovered by James Kennedy, an avocational fossil hunter, who collected the bone and later while cleaning the bone, discovered the engraving.The Presurfer
