10.5" Woolly Mammoth Lower M3 Molar - Germany

This beautiful fossil is a molar from an adult woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius). It was collected from the Rhine River of Germany and is between 20 and 50 thousand years old. This amazing example is an M3 molar from the right lower jaw of an adult mammoth. The tooth shows feeding wear and the prisms (hard enamel structures), dentine, and cementum are in very good condition.

Comes with display stand.

The Woolly Mammoth (Mammuthus primegenius) is the iconic Pleistocene animal. They had long hair, tusks that extended up to 9 feet, and stood about 12 feet tall. They ranged across the northern hemisphere and were one of the most abundant Pleistocene creatures.

The gravel deposits along the Rhine River used to produce a large number of Pleistocene fossils while quarrying for gravel aggregate. They have become much harder to come by in recent years as the quarry operations have become more mechanized and the fossils are often destroyed in the process.
