OSKALOOSA (KWWL) -

Researchers continue to find more mammoth bones on a farm in Oskaloosa. 

Since finding two mammoths on the same farm, scientists have found the bones of a jaw and an upper molar.

An expert believes finding the upper molar is an important discovery, because it can help with radiocarbon dating. 

The farms owner, wishes not to be identified. The remains of the mammoths appear to be 12,000 years old.
