Little is known about Vermont's Ice Age giants but studies have revealed human-made projectile points were used to hunt shaggy mastodons locally. A replica of the elephant-like baby and adult-10-feet-tall at the shoulder-is shown here at a new New York State Museum exhibit in Albany. By 10,000 B.C., over 100 species, including giant mastodons and moose-elk, had disappeared from Vermont's landscape. A similar Ice Age beast, the larger wooly mammoth, also lived in Vermont; its remains were found in Mt. Holly while mastodon remains were found in Bristol-proof that both elephant-like giants roamed our ancient backyard.
