Here in Venice, FL finding pieces of a Columbian Mammoth tooth isn't too rare, but to find a COMPLETE tooth is!
Last week, while diving aboard the Hammerhead dive boat, a complete Mammoth tooth was found!
The Columbian Mammoth lived in Florida during the Ice Age. They had two sets of teeth, 2 uppers & 2 lowers which were replaced as they got older & worn down. The Columbian Mammoth was a grass land grazing elephant, usually standing over 12 feet tall and more than 10,000 pounds. Recent scholarship indicates that it was a smooth skinned elephant, rather than woolly as its' northern neighbor.
I didn't have any trouble believing the giant shark tooth stuff. I even made three trips out to Venice myself.
But mammoth teeth? What is next - National Geographic magazine reporting about African natives being eaten by herds of marauding rogue elephants?
You Other Coast peoples had a good thing going there with the fossilized shark teeth, but I'm not too sure about this. This is sounding like the carpetbaggers over here going on and on about those Smooth Lobsters.
Thanks for sharing.
We go to the Peace River in Arcadia every year and while we have found some buffalo/bison teeth, only fragments of these babies have been seen by us.
Pictures and proof positive of a Caribbean Smooth Tailed Lobster in my pictures.

I am partial to Coasties and P.J's, because they carry band-aids and are like 911 for Seals, Rangers, Recon, and Pilots.
It's all about fun folks!
