Florida scuba divers find Colombian mammoth leg bone in river

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A man and his friend have made an "incredible" discovery while scuba diving in a river.

Derek Demeter and Henry Sadler were diving in the Peace River in the US state of Florida on April 25 when they uncovered a giant Columbian mammoth leg bone.

"In Florida between two million to 10,000 years ago, Florida had these giants roam the prehistoric savannah grasslands," Mr Demeter wrote on Facebook. 

The bone measured about 1.2-metres-long and weighed around 22kg.

Another thing that is frequently found in rivers in the South and Florida are Megladon Teeth. It would be wonderful to find something like that.

I have found countless shark teeth and ray plates in the springs but nothing much over an inch.
