Cohoes mastodon

We went to the New York State Museum in Albany on Monday; haven't been in a while.  This is the Cohoes mastodon.  It's named for the city of Cohoes, where it was discovered in 1866.  Very few large animal fossils are found in this area, so the mastodon is quite a local treasure.  It turns out that mastodons are not related to mammoths at all.  This fellow was a juvenile, was apparently in poor health and died about 11,000 years ago.
