Visitors to the History Center museum may recall the fossil bone displayed in its popular “Mammoth or Mastodon” exhibit. The bone was uncovered in a riverbank after a Carmel River flood years ago and has been on display in the museum since 2014. Since then, it has been a mystery if it was a Mammoth or a Mastodon fossil. That is, until recently!
Ron Long, the paleontologist who made the touchable reproduction on the display, has told the Historical Society that the bone definitely is from a Mastodon. He also provided interesting information and photos describing the complex process of creating the reproduction.
