Mammoth of Ecatepec in MazatlanFor the first time residents and tourists of the port of Mazatlan will have the opportunity to enjoy the archaeological exhibition ‘Mammoth, the giant of Prehistory’ at the Archaeological Museum of Mazatlan from May 17 to July 26.

The remains of the Mammoth were located in 1996 during the construction of a water tank in Ecatepec de Morelos, State of Mexico. It is estimated that it weighed approximately ten tons and was 10,500 years old. The skeleton rescued and restored in 80% has an approximate weight of two and a half tons and during the exhibition it reaches a height of four meters.

Gibran de la Torre, in charge of the Museum of the National Institute of Anthropology and History, said that thanks to the efforts of the INAH, the INAH Sinaloa Center, the City Council of Mazatlan and the Social and Cultural Action Commission of Cabildo, this exhibition could be brought to the port.
