Mammoth falls was built 15,000 years ago by the prehistoric man, was discovered in Mexico at the time.

The traps consist of two wells, which have been used by hunters around the corner and kill the huge animal. The walls of the pit were about 5.6 feet deep, and the dimensions are 82 feet in diameter, according to the mexican National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).

Archaeologists have recovered 824 the bones of the holes in the ground in the area of Tultepec just north of Mexico City. The bones are probably the remains of at least 14 mammoths. The remains of the other two species, which have disappeared in America — a horse and a camel have also been found.

Researchers said on Wednesday, as the pits were found during excavations on the land that was to be used as a garbage dump. Archaeologists spent 10 months in, the excavation of the site.

The discovery is a watershed, a touchstone to which we have looked at up to this point has been the interaction of hunter-gatherer bands with large herbivores,” said Pedro Francisco Sánchez Nava, national coordinator of archaeology at INAH, in a statement.

Woolly mammoth was the last mammoth species became extinct approximately 4,000 years ago.

In 2012, there has been an almost complete skeleton of a woolly mammoth that was found in France, much to the delight of the archaeologists. Woolly mammoth has been found, but are more common in Siberia, where the frozen remains were discovered on a number of occasions.

The excavation of well-preserved mammoth remains, and with the advances in genetic research have led to a discussion of the long-extinct animal can be cloned. However, the code of ethics of the scientists about the potential “de-extinction” of species, are hotly debated, with critics saying that the funds would be better spent on the existing wildlife.

In 2017, when a 10-year-old in the state of New Mexico have stumbled across a million-year old fossil, thought to be of a Stegomastodon skull. The following year, three young men in the Mississippi river, and dug up a mastodon fossil was believed for nearly 100,000 years old.
