Photos: Mammoth skeleton unearthed.

A Texas family business has discovered a ‘90% complete’ mammoth skeleton in their gravel pit, after striking a 6ft long tusk with an excavator.

The find has been donated to the nearby Perot Museum, which is working to remove the skeleton, which is estimated to be a 9ft (2.7m) tall female which died between 20,000 to 60,000 years ago.
