15" Fossil Horse Jaw - Pleistocene, Germany
This is a 15" long, fossil lower jaw of a Pleistocene aged horse (Equus sp) from the Rhine River in Germany. All six molars are still in place in the jaw section. Comes with a displays stand.
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.
