Workers have discovered hundreds of bones belonging to Ice Age animals, including mammoths, mastodons and glyptodons, while digging to build a wastewater treatment plant north of Mexico City.

The bones could be between 10,000 and 12,000 years old and may include a human tooth from the late Pleistocene period, Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History said on Thursday.

Tusks, skulls, jawbones, horns, ribs, vertebrae and shells were discovered 65 feet deep in Atotonilco de Tula, a town in the state of Hidalgo, as workers built a drain, the institute said.

These remains belong to a range of species including mastodons, mammoths, camels, horses, deer and glyptodons, the armadillo's ancestor. Some bones may belong to bison, while others have not been identified.

And how did such animals and a human tooth all get into one pit? Simple. Extraterrestrials! Ha! .............( I poke fun, but I enjoy Giorgio Tsoukalos and his theories. )

Maybe the armadillos had a hankering for human?

If that is a human's tooth, it would be one of the oldest North American human remains.
