The Snowmass Mastodons

Excavations of the amazing finds near Snowmass, Colorado are wrapping up.   Mammoths, mastodons, ground sloths, bison, camels and horses were all found in excellent state of preservation.  There was apparently wood and leaves found in the boggy environment.  I hope some great information comes from this extraordinary find.
