Seattle construction workers had a rather strange Valentine's Day this year. While love birds around the city were gorging on chocolate, workers at an AMLI construction site in South Lake Union were unearthing a 20,000-year-old Columbian mammoth tusk, which is currently located at the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture.
Help name a 20,000-year-old mammoth
Now, the Burke Museum, AMLI and KING 5 are asking the public to help the mammoth rediscover its name.
Submissions will be accepted from March 8 to March 30 and winners will be announced at the Burke Museum on April 11 from 6 to 8 p.m. Winners will receive a membership to the Burke Museum, a gift bag and a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum's paleontology collection.
Entries can be submitted online at seattlemammoth.org or in person at the Burke Museum.
