Demeter, director of the planetarium at Seminole State University (a showroom where an artificial image of celestial bodies is projected onto a dome-shaped ceiling with a special reflector), described those moments:
Henry is my ping buddy. During the pe he called out to me and said, ‘Oh my god! Hey, Derek. “I found something,” he said. It was really beautiful.
The two friends reported that they regularly pe in southwest Florida and have previously found mammoth tusks in this river.
On the day they discovered the leg bone, pers also discovered several small fossils of extinct sharks and a tooth from a saber-toothed cat, Fox35 reported.

The bone found buried in Juma is thought to belong to a Colombian mammoth (Mammuthus columbi).
The age of the bone is unknown, but it is known that Colombian mammoths roamed the Americas during the last Ice Age, which began 2.6 million years ago and ended 11,700 years ago.
It is estimated that Colombian mammoths, living in lands stretching from today’s USA to Costa Rica, emerged about 500,000 years ago when the woolly mammoth and another mammoth line interbred.
In addition, in 2011, scientists determined that the fossils found in Vero Beach in southeast Florida were dated to about 13,000 years ago.

The new bone is presumed to be a femur. The animal it belongs to is thought to be 2.25 meters in length and 10 thousand kilograms in weight.
