PHOTO IN THE NEWS: Mystery Bone Found on Peruvian Bus

2008-03-28 - Lima, Peru

Police who investigated the buss cargo hold said they noticed the package because it had no identifying marks and was oddly heavy. "They were worried about its weight, opened it, and found the fossil," Kleber Jimenez, a local police officer, told the Reuters news service. The remains most likely belonged to a proboscidean, or elephant relative.
