Description

Abstract:

In recent years specimens of Mammuthus columbi were located in the State of Morelos (México). This is one of the most southern points of their known Nearctic distributional range. The specimen has a high completeness, however it calls the attention that some bones from extremities were not found in the excavation. Then, the question is whether this specimen could be used for consumption. This presentation discusses this possibility based on the skeletal representation of the specimen.
