On May 27, Jennifer Schuh walked along a beach in Monterey Bay, south of Santa Cruz, California. When I got to a small creek I stopped and spoke to a lady on the other side.
– Then the lady asked About what was lying in front of my feet. And when I looked down, I saw that there was something strange, as if it had been burnt, as you say Watchman.
Curious, Schuh took some photos but left the 12-inch object behind. At home, she posted pictures on Facebook. Maybe someone can help her solve the puzzle.
Wayne can do Thompson, advisor to the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History regarding fossil collections.
“This is a very important find,” wrote Thompson, who identified the object in the images as a tooth from an extinct long-legged elephant-like animal—a mastodon.
Wayne Thompson wrote he ran to the beach as fast as he could but only to find that the tooth was gone Santa Cruz Ranger.
And it was just as bad Jennifer Schuh who also returns to the beach to locate the unusual find. And although she returned several times over the weekend, the tooth was never found.
A second call echoed on social media around the world, and then it turned out that a runner on the same trail as Jennifer Schuh had snagged a tooth and taken it home.
Jogger, Jim Smith From Aptos not far from the discovery site, he got his language answer when he surfed the net and realized the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History was interested in the find.
Now the tooth has been donated to a museum where it has been determined to be no more than a million years old. The museum’s Liz Broughton believes the fact that it came ashore is because it was washed up from an area higher than the shore, something that usually happens when winter storms sweep the area.
The Guardian writes that this is the third discovery of a fragment of a mastodon in the region.
