University experts determined these bones are more than 15,000 years old. Researchers have determined that the mammoth was likely a 45-year-old male.
University of Michigan paleontologists conducted a second excavation this week at the Chelsea-area farm where the skull, tusks and dozens of intact bones of an ice age mammoth were pulled from the ground in late 2015.
A U-M news video of the skull and two attached tusks being hoisted from the muddy excavation pit with a backhoe on October 1, 2015, has been viewed more than 875,000 times on YouTube.
