Huge trove of mammoth skeletons unearthed in Mexico

Archaeologists have made the largest ever discovery of mammoth remains in central Mexico.

A trove of 800 bones from at least 14 of the extinct giants was found.

Moreover, this excavation is thought to be the first-ever find of a mammoth trap set by humans.

"This is the largest find of its kind ever made," the National Institute of Anthropology and History said in a statement.

Mexico has been the scene of surprising mammoth discoveries before.

In the 1970s, workers building the Mexico City subway found a mammoth skeleton while digging on the capital's north side.
