The yellowing dog digs through a pit, and the owner finds the dog with the booty found until the next day. He suspects that the dog has found a “treasure”.
Dogs have the habit of digging a hole to bury hidden objects they find, such as toys stolen from an opponent, or to show the animal’s zeal. However, Scout, a Labrador hound from Whidbey Island, Washington, seems to enjoy higher levels of enjoyment.
In September, an eight-month-old puppy dug a 13,000-year-old giant elephant tooth, according to Iflscience.
According to Komo News, owner Kirk Lacewell noticed the Scout yellow dog was sucking something in his mouth as it digged a shallow pit in the backyard. Thinking it was a piece of rock or something of no importance, Lacewell was dressed for pleasure.
But when we noticed that until the next day, the dog seemed to be attracted to the new toy, Lacewell decided to look at the item better. After washing and drying the stone that Scout found, he realized that it was very much like a bone.
Unsure of his findings, he sent specimens to some archeologists at the University of Washington’s Buke Museum. The scientists quickly identified the source of the specimen and estimated its age.
Teeth often lasts longer than other parts of the mammoth,” says Andrea Godinez, director of marketing at the Burke Museum for Komo News. In terms of the number of fossils discovered, Whidbey Island was home to a large number of mammoths before the end of the Ice Age, about 11,000 years ago.
Because mammoth giant mammoth fossils are not rare, the museum has not researched it yet, nor is it publicly displayed. However, even if fossils are not extraordinary, one must admit that the specimen excavation is a special situation.
“I could not imagine the moment when a dog discovered a fossil. They seem to fit in with finding the treasure. ”
