Mothers often tell their kids not to pick up any strange objects, but one young boy from Michigan is probably glad he doesn’t follow that advice.

Phillip Stoll, a 9-year-old boy from Windsor Township, Michigan, was playing in a creek behind his house last summer when he literally stumbled upon a fossilized mastodon tooth.

“I was walking down at the creek last summer. I felt something that I stepped on so I picked it up and everybody in the neighborhood thought it was pretty cool,” Philip Stoll told CNN last week.

The boy known as “Huckleberry Phil” around the neighborhood brought the object home to show his mother and begin an analysis on his discovery. After washing off the rabbit-sized object, Stoll said he checked to see if it was magnetic – it wasn’t.
