A retired Oregon police officer, Mike Full traded his badge for scuba gear in order to search the South Yamhill riverbed for prehistoric fossils. An underwater detective, Mike has collected over 30 percent of the pieces to a giant mammoth skeleton, which other paleontologists call “exceptional”. As Field Guide cameras accompany Mike under the water, watch as he makes the discovery of a lifetime right in front of our eyes.
