Bachelor party makes impressive fossil discovery in Elephant Butte
KRQE Via Yahoo Odd News ^ | 6/11/14 | Will Lerner

Elephant Butte is a small city in New Mexico that calls itself the “Diamond in the Desert.” As KRQE News 13 reports, it was in this scenic location that a group of friends celebrating a bachelor party made an astonishing find – a giant fossil of the tusk and skull of what’s believed to be a Stegomastodon. According to the University of Nebraska State Museum, Stegomastodons were, “the last surviving member of a lineage of primitive tuskers called ‘gomphotheres’ which first entered North America 15 million years ago.”

It’s the symbol of the NM GOP when John Dendahl was in charge.

It’s time for a new name. Wasn’t there a Beaver College that finally let go of the great name of Beaver and switched to something less giggle-inducing?

What were they doing in an elephant’s butte in the first place? Not very sanity and has little light with which to see.

Cool!
Thanks for the ping.

I’ve found many common invertebrate fossils in that area, but nothing this neat or significant.

Probably not not-a-ping worthy, but I thought you’d get a kick out of the headline. ;)

“Worst.Bachelor.Party.Ever”

Agreed. Even the location choice for a Bachelor’s party, not to mention the activities they chose to participate in, indicate guys who are NOT FULLY CLUED IN ON THE CONCEPT.
