Ten-year-old boy trips back in time

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

A boy’s mis­step on a fam­ily hike in New Mex­ico has given the world a pre­his­toric won­der. Ten-year-old Jude Sparks was on a desert hike in Las Cruces in Novem­ber when he tripped over what turned out to be the fos­silized tusk of a 1.2 mil­lionyear-old ele­phant-like crea­ture, called a ste­go­mastodon. It was es­ti­mated that the en­tire skull weighs a ton.
