Baby Mastodon Hips

The Dig

The Dig

The small team of highly trained archaeologists worked carefully yet speedily as their years of experience and skill showed through. After all, it’s not every day, year or century even, that a find like this is made. The excitement was at an extremely high level in the camp. Everyone was aware of the potential impact of such a great discovery. This impact would have perpetual, lasting effects on the scientific community at large, or even at small, anyway, a major impact upon all areas of mankind.
All of the participants in the dig, from the leading Anthropologist, Dr. Zo Far Beehind, to the lowliest “Nuammi Bush Bush”, which a slang term in the local vernacular for “desert butler”, will find themselves in line for an abundance of fraternal, paternal and maternal notoriety.
As they continued the dig, it became more and more obvious that they did indeed stumble upon this one of a kind find: a female, mommy “Woolly Mammoth”, or Mastodon that had just given birth to it’s new born infant baby woolly Mammoth, Mastodon. This new born creature was estimated to have weighed more than 250 lbs. Quite a little package.





The press was there representing all of the major news sources reporting for points all around the globe. A congratulatory phone call was received from the president of the United States, saying how proud he was of “his” team making such an enormous contribution to mankind and that the U.S. will continue to proceed in this manner, even though not one of “his” team was an American, that is, a U.S. citizen,  and that sacrifices of this kind do not go unnoticed, blah, blah, blah.
The roar of rotating helicopter propellers could be heard now as two giant workhorse copters were lining up to prepare for the extraction of the baby Woolly Mammoth. They each let down their lines and the team below fastened them, along with the mesh, titanium netting, snugly beneath the baby.
