Million-year old Whitetail Found In Florida

Dr. Kroll recently acquired a whitetail jawbone from southern Florida that has been estimated to be about a million years old. The jawbone was found in a Seminole midden and shows the signs of having been burned. "I am not certain of the geologic age," says Dr. Kroll, "but I can tell you with all authority the deer was 6.5+ years old when killed." Incidentally, this find comes as Dr. Deer prepares to release the first online education module (Aging and Judging White-tailed Deer).
