Surprised it lasted this long - bones usually dissolve in our damp soil in less than 75 years. Now Seattle is trying to name it. Suggestions include South Lake Union Tusk (SLUT), South Lake Union Mammoth (SLUM), and the 12th Mam.

Well they can not call it SLUT that is the South Lake Union Trolley. It was interesting to watch it daily on the local news.
