An 11,000-year-old tooth belonging to a woolly mammoth has been found on a golf course in Michigan by a grounds crew worker.

“I would have tossed it in a rock pile,” says Charlie Riley, 58, who’s also the club pro. But Walker had seen a plaster cast of a mammoth tooth in a science class once, and he knew immediately what he’d discovered. He alerted the boss, who rolled out in a cart to see for himself.

“It’s as big as your head and as long as my foot,” Charlie reports. “It’s all I can do to lift it with one hand.”
