(Harrisburg) -- Bones from a wooly mammoth found in a northwestern Pennsylvania lake bed 21 years ago will be displayed at the State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg for one day later this month.
The bones from what is referred to as the Moon Mammoth will be displayed at the museum's Dino Lab October 17 before they're put into storage for scientific study.
The remains are so named because they were found in Lake Pleasant in Venango Township by a scuba diver named George Moon.
The skeleton is one of the most complete of any found in the Great Lakes region. About 80 percent of the prehistoric elephant relative's bones are intact.
The exhibit coincides with National Fossil Day.
