Dr. Richard Stucky DMNS Curator of Paleoecology and Evolution watches for stegomastodon bones as the excavator carefully removes dirt from the surface at the Weiss Gravel Pit near Holyoke, Colorado. The location of a gravel pit allowed the DMNS staff to be aided by excavators. This is a very unusual occurance at a paleontology dig site.
