Charity shop given mammoth's teeth
A red cross charity shop in Umeå in northern Sweden has received an unlikely donation. Instead of a coat, table lamp or other everyday item, volunteers at the shop were given two sets of teeth from a prehistoric mammoth.
The teeth were in possession of a resident at an elderly residents home who had passed away. Anna Marja Hagner at the red cross shop told Swedish Radio in Västerbotten that the teeth have to be checked out by the Swedish Board of Agriculture and if they were not of any monetary value then at least "they can be shown off in our shop."
They received the gift on April 1st and thought at first that it was an April Fool's joke.
