SF mammoth tooth fossil on display at Cal Academy
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A recently-discovered slice of ancient history is now on display at a San Francisco museum. You can see the fossilized tooth of a Columbian mammoth at the California Academy of Sciences.
The fossil was found in September by a crane operator working at the Transbay Transit Center construction site in Downtown San Francisco.
He made the discovery about 100-feet below street level.
It's a big chunk of an upper tooth belonging to a 12-to-14 foot-tall mammoth that lived more than 8,000 years ago.
