Iztapan (Santa Isabel Iztapan) is the location of two imperial mammoth (Mammuthus imperator) finds, one in 1952 and another in 1954 both were in the green muck of the Upper Becerra Formation. Discovered with the first were a flint projectile of the Scottsbluff classification, an obsidian scraper, knife and prismatic blade, and an end scraper and retouched blade of flint. The second mammoth had three stone artifacts with it, an Angostura point, a flint Lerma point, and a chert, bi facially working knife.
