Punches of prehistoric mammoth found underwater – video

A stunning find has been made by divers in the waters surrounding Venice Beach, Florida. Blair Morrow and Ryan Picou of Aquanutz Scuba Diving Charters discovered giant blows of a prehistoric Columbian mammoth underwater. Their age is estimated by experts to be several thousand years old.

About a month ago, while diving in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Blair Morrow came across a giant Columbian mammoth blow. He made the find during one of his routine dives that he usually conducts in the area.

The rock discovered by her fossil measures almost 2.5 metres in length and has a diameter of over 55 cm at the base. Remarkably, this magnificent artefact was found less than a mile offshore.

It doesn’t stop there though! Recently, another Colombian mammoth blow was found by Ryan Picou, a diver from Aquanutz Scuba Diving Charters, which is part of a group called iHUNTdeadThings. However, the blow he found is slightly smaller and measures “only” 183 cm in length.

When you go diving at this site, you don’t think about finding anything like the blows of a prehistoric mammoth. We’ve already found horse teeth, whale bones and other rare fossils on our expeditions, but I missed the trip when the blows were found said Glenn Swanger, of Aquanutz Scuba Diving Charters

One of the blows of a Columbian mammoth was in a fossilised bed. Just below it lay the shell of a glyptodon, which was a giant prehistoric armadillo. Many different fragments of turtle shell were also found nearby.

Colombian mammoths were giant creatures that became extinct 11,500 years ago. A find of this type is extremely valuable. Both in terms of history and research, as well as financially. All because the whole fang is currently worth from 4 to 10 thousand dollars on the collector’s market. So it is not surprising that in the region of the Gulf of Mexico, many people dive in search of fossils.
