The first mammoth I ever met was, of course, on the Flintstones. Very useful. Served as their shower... vacuum cleaner... you name it. Maybe even built their architecturally fascinating stone houses. Come find this mammoth tag at a stone Flintstone house, by the window where he might offer you a nice shower.

North side, under window, look behind the heart-shaped rock. I live nearby and might be waving at you from my porch, depending on when the tag goes live.

Don't forget, claim this one immediately after you find it (as a courtesy to other seekers.) You will need to pay shipping for the cool backing that the mammoth attaches to magnetically.

2 woolly mammoths have recently been discovered by scientists. Included here is photographic evidence of the mammoths, safely encased in solid ice during the ice age, now thawing out in our era. One of the mammoths can be found at this location. Take a few moments to honor the past here. The mammoth here is inside a protective container; please take and keep it, as well.

Woolly just got kicked out the the RV resort... it probably had something to do with not keeping the appropriate social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic. So now, he's hiding under a red "hat". There is room to park completely off the road before searching for the mammoth!

In Benson, AZ, Mammoth footprints were found in a remote desert landscape. The footprints were thought to have been made 5 million years ago. What kind of footprint will this Woolly Mammoth leave?

On July 3, 1997, officials in Chandler, AZ were alerted that dinosaur fossils had been found. Mammoths could be spotted (at one time) all over Arizona... looks like you might uncover another one today!

woohooo...was surprised this was still hidden..i showed up exactly 7am and gate was open.. the hunt was on... was still night out at 7am so had to use my internal night goggles to read signs to direct me in the right direction. Completely missed a couple of the pictured hints .and walked all the way around the perimeter coming into a different side then spotting my error.. Victorious on my search for the woolly mammoth..

I'm not sure that the Game Commission lists this season, but I knew that hunting was permitted where this beast was spotted. It was still dark when RJ-Pup and I set out and it was surprising how many others were travelling around town. I could see a glow in the distance, which must have been the city lights, as the rain and earliness meant it was not yet the rising sun. The friendly beast was found as pictured, then RJ-Pup and I walked a bit up and down the road for her to have some sniffing time.

This mammoth is hiding in downtown hoping that he can see another day. Just like the wooly mammoths is a rare sight these days so are bells to ring out alerts to the community. Luckily this historic relic is located in a great place to share with the next generation.

This Wooley can be found near where miners first found Astrodon Jonstoni. Even kids can find dinosaurs.

In September 2012 in Russia, an 11-year-old boy named Yevgeny “Zhenya” Salinder happened upon an extremely well-preserved woolly mammoth carcass while walking his dogs. The remains were of a 16-year-old male woolly mammoth that died about 30,000 years ago. The discovery helped scientists conclude that the large “lumps” on a mammoth’s back were extra stores of fat to help it survive winters. The mammoth was nicknamed “Zhenya.”

If you have the time stop by and say hello Astrodon Jonstoni.

This was a great hide, and really what this game and geocaching as a whole is all about. Mr. Frozey Fossil brought me a whole 1hr and 27 min out of my comfort zone to guide me to this beautiful historic place where I imagined they once played as a child through these fields and had the time of their lives growing into the wooly they are today. Shout out to this hider and the Manis Mastodon. What are wonderful adventurous world we live in.

This tag is in a secure back yard that will require some dexterity to retrieve. You have full permission to retrieve it. No need to cut any locks. Geosense should prevail on its magnetic hiding spot. If all else fails, the photos should take care of everything. Enjoy the slight challenge and hunt. The photos will complete give it away. Good luck.

Mr. Frozey Fossil has awakened to a strange, new world after a very long slumber. Frozey would like to find a herd to which he can belong, so he travels west; where he knows his mastodon cousins once roamed. Sadly, he didn't find any woolly kin here...just this plaque where they once played. Mr. Fossil's journey to find a mammoth doesn't end here, but if you're quick, yours will!

[tag hider] description 10 months 9 hours ago 690 - Hider Tag

Squash-A-Maximus, lived a tranquil life between two adjacent lakes. He had two twin daughters Stampalina and Trampalina. All three were considered free-range roaming woolly mammoths that moved across the lands now known as Watchung, Warren and Dunellen. At the time, hunters were killing these types animals for the meat, tusks, and fur, but the local farmers chose not to hunt them, but allowed them live free. Each year once winter had passed, the farmers were able to shave the woolly mammoths and trade their fur with the Scottish, who used it to make pre-modern kilts. The problem was the heat and itch factor the fur caused and thus the woolly mammoth kilts were no longer desirable. Squash-A-Maximus just disappeared one night. Many scholars of the time concluded he migrated to what is now known as Quebec. However storywriters and bards of the time began telling stories of the great friendly woolly mammoth that disappeared into the lake and to this day his shadowy spirit still roams free.

His twin daughters. Stampalina was very whimsical and like to play on the mountains. After a good hard rain she would sit on her rump and slide down the mountainside riding the mud to the bottom. The local farmers were always amazed to see this giant animal play and many families braved rainstorms to watch. The mud would completely cover her and she would get up and stomp her way back to the top.
It was one of these playful rides in a mud that was her undoing. On a particularly stormy night she stomped her way to the top, loosing the earth with each tremendous step. Her very first ride carved out a path and created massive mudslide. Resting in a pool of flooding rain water, the muddy avalanche over took Stampaline and buried her. Since then the rain has forged out a new path, but left her burial site untouched. Trampalina’s death was one of great struggle and she did not take this laying down. She fought against the foreign hunters with her massive tusks and uprooted many trees during her battle. The hunters tried to drive her to the cliff’s edge, but she ran back trampling over anyone in her way. Finally, with a mighty roar, a hoarse barking noise and last moaning gasp, she succumbed to the hunter’s weapons. It’s said in local folklore that if you walk her last path from the drop-off to her final resting place, you can hear the mighty roar and feel the ground shake.
