Product Description

Woolly Mammoth Tooth. The woolly mammoth is an extinct species of elephant-like mammals that lived 4.8 million years ago until as recently as 4,500 years ago. Male mammoths possessed large tusks, some measuring over 11 feet in length. Females mammoths also grew tusks but they were smaller than those of the male. The cusps of mammoth teeth are flat which allows them to chew and grind tough grasses. Unlike the mastodon, mammoths are the ancestors of modern elephants.

This is a top grade specimen of a baby molar tooth from a Woolly mammoth, Mammuthus primigenius, of the last Ice Age.  The tooth is complete with full roots with part of jawbone and has an amazing fully intact and prominent chewing surface.  Teeth from baby mammoths are scarce and rarely survive prehistory intact, not to mention survive with the roots as this specimen shows. Entire molar is stable and solid of excellent mineralization.

This woolly mammoth tooth approx. 7.5"x5.5"x3.25" and weight 2.2 lbs
