SEATTLE, WA. – The tusk of a Colombian Mammoth was discovered 30 feet underneath a Seattle construction site.
Turns out the giant animals roamed through here at a time when this entire area was covered in ice.
Scientists say the tusk could be 60,000-years-old.
Removing it was a delicate operation. It was encased in plaster to keep it intact, then gently lifted and placed on a waiting truck, while crowds gathered to watch.
The ancient artifact is now at Burke Museum and will soon be on display for all to see.
