13,000-Year-Old Bone With Mammoth Or Mastodon Carving May Be First In Western Hemisphere : The bone fragment, discovered in Vero Beach, Fla., contains an incised image about 3 inches long from head to tail and about 1 3/4 inches from  head to foot. The bone was found by a fossil hunter near a location where human bones were found side-by-side with the bones of extinct Ice Age animals in an excavation from 1913 to 1916. Mammoths and mastodons had died out in the Americas by 13,000 years ago
