WHO KILLED THE BURNING TREE MASTODON?


Who (or what) killed the Burning Tree mastodon? Find out on Friday January 24th at 7:30 PM at the monthly meeting of the Columbus Rock and Mineral Society. I will be giving a presentation about the life and untimely death of a mastodon whose remains were uncovered at a Licking County golf course in December of 1989.

We found this humerus. Curator Emeritus of Natural History Bob Glotzhober (on the left) and Brad Lepper (center) with two volunteers retrieving one of the upper arm bones of the Burning Tree mastodon.
