Mastodon Tusk (VCU_3D_2870)
This mastodon was 3D scanned with a NextEngine Desktop 3D scanner at the Western Science Center’s (http://www.westerncentermuseum.org/) Valley of the Mastodons workshop and conference in August 2017. It exhibits damage possibly related to fighting with another mastodon and is affectionately called “the warrior” tusk. The tusk is on display as part of the Valley of the Mastodons exhibit.
