SEATTLE, Washington (KING) -- An Ice Age tusk was found thirty feet below a housing development in Seattle Tuesday morning.

Construction crews preparing to lay concrete made the discovery on land at the corner of Mercer and Pontius.

Paleontologists from the Burke Museum were called by the contractor, and indicated confidence it "represents a tusk from an Ice Age mammoth."
