A lifeguard found the remains of a glyptodon that inhabited the Buenos Aires coast during the last ice age, on a beach in Camet Norte on Sunday

"I love this place very much. It represents me as a lifeguard, as a person, and the truth is that I am very proud to have participated in this, to have found it," said Rafael, the lifeguard who made the discovery.

Residents who came to the beach were enthusiastic about the discovery.
