Boy, 12, Finds Woolly Mammoth or Mastodon Tooth on Grounds of Ohio Inn

Millersburg, OH -- A 12-year-old playing on the grounds of an Ohio inn made an unusual discovery -- a fossilized tooth from a woolly mammoth or a mastodon.

The Inn at Honey Run in Millersburg said Jackson Hepner, 12, a relative of the inn's owner,spotted the object on the ground in a creek tributary.

His family worked to identify the object, which they suspected of being a tooth from a woolly mammoth or a mastodon, elephant-like creatures from the Ice Age.

The Inn said experts have looked at photos of the tooth and identified it as an upper 3rd molar from a woolly mammoth or a mastodon.
