World's Largest Fossil Mold On Display For Limited Time

Here is something you don't see every day, it's a Giant Mammoth Herd Bull - also known as the world's largest fossil mold. It's 35 feet long and ten feet wide. This particular specimen was found near Waco.

"He was buried trying to rescue a baby mammoth struck in the mud," said Henry Johnson, Assistant Director of the Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum. "The mud flowed over them and buried them all."

The skeleton was molded and cast by Joe Taylor at the Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum in Crosbyton. And it will only be around for another week.

To get a closer look, stop by the museum at 124 West Main in Crosbyton. The cost is $4 for adults and a $1 for children.
