Texas gravel pit digger Marty McEwen got a mammoth surprise on his father's property earlier this year.

He found a virtually complete mammoth skeleton.

Though McEwen often finds small bone fragments and old animal teeth on the property, he knew right away he had hit upon something much bigger than usual. McEwen told CBS Dallas that with "just the first bucket swipe we hit the tusk of the mammoth."

After consulting with a paleontologist, it became clear they had an eight or nine foot tall mammoth on their hands that had roamed the region 20,000 to 60,000 years ago.
