CAPE CORAL, Fla., — A Florida utilities crew discovered a fossil archeologists now believe may be of a woolly mammoth or mastodon.

The crew was digging in a trench 17 feet below the ground in Cape Coral last month.

The crew turned over the fossil to the city which brought in archeologists to assess it.

Robert Carr with the Archeological and Historical Conservancy says the fossil fragment was probably part of the mammoth’s humorous bone, or upper arm.
