InMay 1965, mammoth remains were exposed during the excavation of a borrow pit for construction of Interstate Highway 40, 2 mi northeast of Hazen, Prairie County, Arkansas. The proboscidian remains consisted of a skull with tusks, mandibles, atlas and other skeletal elements.

Body size downgrading of mammals over the late Quaternary
This work demonstrates that size-selective extinction was already under way in the oldest interval and occurred on all continents, within all trophic modes, and across all time intervals, and the degree of selectivity was unprecedented in 65 million years of mammalian evolution.


Elephant Teeth from the Atlantic Continental Shelf
Teeth of mastodons and mammoths have been recovered by fishermen from at least 40 sites on the continental shelf as deep as 120 meters, indicating elephants and other large mammals ranged this region during the glacial stage of low sea level of the last 25,000 years.
