The four-foot mammoth bone was found at the bottom of the Peace River
Two scuba divers from Florida discovered a mammoth four-foot, 50-pound (23-kg approximately) bone, possibly dating back to the Ice Age, while diving in a local river. Derek Demeter and Henry Sadler found the bone embedded in the sand at the bottom of the Peace River. Henry shared the image on Instagram, saying that it was a "once-in-a-lifetime" discovery. "I was fortunate enough to find two amazing once-in-a-lifetime fossils yesterday," he wrote, adding, "Pictured here is a Colombian mammoth leg bone, and while not as rare as the other thing, it is still an incredible find. Amazingly, it is almost completely undamaged and very well mineralised." His followers soon flooded his comments section. While a user, who went by the name 'fearlessfitgeek', wrote, "This is amazing!", 'owengilpin631' said "That's huge! It's a killer find." A third user, 'corey_reed_' commented, "No way! This is insane." Another user 'coleharken' also congratulated the duo "on the amazing discovery". An impressed follower, 'world_of_fossils' exclaimed, "Very impressive! Don't find them that big often!"
