12,350-year-old Mammoth bones found in a farm field where I live. It was a male, about 36 years old. It is also one of the earliest known human activity sites in North America. There is evidence of butchery...cut marks and stone tools. Fascinating.  Posted by Picasa

Wow, you are good if you can tell it was 36 years old!

Dammit, Jim, I'm an ME, not a veterinarian!

I bet if "they" ever do testing for a time travel device, you'll sign up, go back and lend a hand eating that big critter.

BTW - be sure to take some Nutella with you. Dino with Nutella, YUM!

Was it single and hetero? And is there any way to fiddle with the DNA and come up with a human male of similar age?

*looks around innocently*

What? I was just asking!
