Ellis County mammoth skeleton to be donated


EDN News Service, edi...@ennisdailynews.com

Over the next few weeks, an incredibly pristine and nearly complete mammoth skeleton – uncovered in an Ellis County sand and gravel pit where it has lain for thousands of years – will be excavated and transported to its permanent home at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science.

Thanks to the generosity of the Wayne McEwen family, along with the leadership and support of Navarro College, the Mammuthus columbi specimen has been donated to the Perot Museum.
