MAMMOTH

The mammoth was designated the state fossil in 1967. Fossil bones of the largest mammoth in the world were found in Lincoln County in west central Nebraska. It was about fourteen feet tall at the shoulder. This giant elephant once roamed throughout Nebraska and became extinct more than 10,000 years ago.
