This mastodon skeleton was found in a swamp at Johnstown, near Newark, Ohio, in August, 1926. It is that of a young make probably 20 years of age, who had been crippled, presumably by another male in combat for supremacy of the herd, and died about a month afterward. He lived about 50,000 years ago, weighed from 2 to 3 tons, and stood ten feet high
