An 11-year-old boy in Michigan had quite the show and tell recently for his sixth grade class.

Eric Stamatin is holding a 13,000-year-old Mastodon bone. And, get this: he and his cousin found the fossil in a stream behind his house.

Eric says his discovery started him thinking about becoming a paleontologist when he grows up.
