10. SOUNDBITE 1 - Carlos Eduardo Lopez, archaeologist of Universidad Tecnologica de Pereira (male, Spanish, 20 sec): "It would seem that they (the mastodons) were in a small swamp within a creek, a small closed micro basin and there there might have been a strong (weather) event such as rain, an avalanche, a downpour that buried them when they were surely eating in the swamp."
"Parecería que ellos (los mastodontes) estaban en un pequeño pantano dentro de una quebrada, una micro cuenca pequeña cerrada y allí pudo haber un evento fuerte de un torrencial, una avalancha, un torrencial grande que los sepultó cuando ellos estaban seguramente comiendo en el pantano."
