Oregon boy uncovers something prehistoric while exploring his grandma's backyard

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel.

A 9-year-old in Oregon recently uncovered something prehistoric while exploring his grandmother's backyard. Jeremiah Longbrake was playing near a stream when he picked up what he thought was a dirty plastic container. Turns out it was a mammoth's tooth. Yes, that mammoth, the creature that roamed the earth over 10,000 years ago. Jeremiah, you might have a future in archaeology. Who knows? Maybe you'll find a dinosaur tooth next.
