Last week I went to this awesome place called Waco Mammoth Monument . They found some really cool stuff there that I got to see,It was Mammoth bones. Then to figure out that the people that found the first bone were only teenagers almost my age . That goes to show that if you put yourself to it and work hard you will accomplish what you are trying to accomplish.
When we were there we got to dig up bones that they had found and then remade plastic and let us dig. in my square that my group was in we found a shoulder blade that was huge. Also we found part of a tusk that went into another square that was almost seven feet long. Also we went into this building that they found bones in then built around and it turns out that when a nursury pack was found (which is mothers and there young)and they were in circles around the babies that was very interesting
Back to earlier when I was talking about how the nursury crowd would hide around there young when under attack or in danger period. Well recently like two weeks ago the found out more information about that .It turns out that when they found one of the mother Mammoths that she had claw marks in her ribs and some of them had broken legs .But also there was a mud slide so they don't know if they ran into each other or if they were attacked by other animals so soon they will have more on that topic.
