A 13,000-year-old mammoth tooth. A Labrador retriever puppy named Scout dug up a 13,000-year-old fossilized woolly mammoth tooth from its backyard in Whidbey Island, Washington. Owner Kirk Lacewell initially thought Scout just dug up a rock or piece of petrified wood, until he noticed upon further inspection that the piece looked like bone.
