Ancient relics found in giant alligator stomach

Ancient relics were found in the stomach of a giant alligator

A resident of the American state of Mississippi found in the stomach of an alligator artifacts created six and four thousand years ago, reports Fox News.

According to scientists who studied the findings from the stomach reptiles, one of the artifacts is a dart or spear head about six thousand years old, and the second is a plumb-weight for a fishing net, which is about four thousand years old.

The caught animal weighed about 350 kilograms, and in length reached almost four meters. It is noted that the life span of alligators in the wild is 30-50 years.

It is assumed that the alligator swallowed a plumb line and a tip to improve digestion – such objects allow crushing solid objects in the stomach.
