BENTONVILLE, AR-- What's 12 feet tall, 17 feet long and in need of a name? A wooly mammoth, now on display at Bentonville's Museum of Native American History. With the help of some skillful volunteers, the roughly 12,000 year old Siberian skeleton was pieced together in the museum's entry way this week. "This is an amazing thing just to be able to get up close and then study it and learn more about this creature," says Charlotte Buchanan-Yale, with the Museum of Native American History. The mammoth will be on display permanently at the museum. There's currently a contest to help find a name for it but you have to go to the museum for more information.
