Comments (22) Add to My Stories Share A 13,000-year-old bone fragment with an engraving of a mammoth or mastodon has been found in Florida.
Scientists believe the etching is the oldest, and only known, example of Ice Age art to depict a proboscidean - or an animal with a trunk - in the Americas.
The bone was found in Vero Beach by amateur fossil hunter James Kennedy, who later discovered the engraving while cleaning it.
Researchers claim it is evidence that people living in the Americas during the last Ice Age created artistic images of the animals they hunted.

The engraving is at least 13,000 years old - this is the date of the last appearance of these animals in eastern North America, and more recent pre-Columbian people would not have seen a mammoth or mastodon to draw.
Researcher Dennis Stanford, of the Smithsonian Institute, said: 'This is an incredibly exciting discovery.
'There are hundreds of depictions of proboscideans on cave walls and carved into bones in Europe, but none from America - until now.'
