Tales of mammoths feature occasionally here at Cryptomundo (as this link shows), so I figured why not highlight this latest development in the saga of the beast?
It was around two years ago that an Oskaloosa man – named John – along with his sons made a startling find. It was not just a bone, but a big bone. A very big bone. In fact, it was nothing less than the femur of a mammoth.
And such is the importance of the discovery, the University of Iowa is now involved in the study of the bone, as well as a search for additional remains of the legendary creature.
Says Holmes Semken, Professor Emeritus of Geoscience at the university: “It’s what most of us here find interesting. The mammoth is just a great plus.”
