The Mastodons Great Impact on Science

There were fossils hidden where no-one would check. Underground. Digging a pond an innocent family stumbles upon a tusk. They immediately stop digging and contact the Buffalo Museum of Science. The Buffalo Museum of Science started digging the Hiscock Site in 1983.

This was the first Mastodon fossil found. The Buffalo Museum of Science organized the dig since 1983. The tusk was found in the year 1959.
