Paleontologists from Georgia College and State University were on Tybee Island off Georgia’s cast recently for an archaeological dig and uncovered one of the region’s most ancient mammals.  The skeletons of 58,000 year old bison were over 25% larger than today’s version, and had horns upwards of 7 feet long.  What is now the state’s scenic coastline was once a sprawling grassland, and researchers hope to learn more about what it looked like before the world’s last major ice age ended.
