5.6" Polished Mammoth Molar Section - South Carolina

This is an interesting, 5.6" wide section of a Columbia Mammoth (Mammuthus columbi) molar collected from a river in South Carolina. Two surfaces (front/back) have been polished to a glossy finish, revealing the unique inner detail of the tooth. Comes with an acrylic display stand.

While finding complete mammoth molars in these rivers is rare, finding fragmented or partial molars is much more common. They are collected by divers who are searching primarily for Megalodon shark teeth that have eroded out of the rocks and can be found along the river bottoms.

The Columbian mammoth was one of the last members of the American megafauna to go extinct, with the date of disappearance generally set at approximately 12,500 years ago. The Columbian mammoth was a savanna and grassland inhabitant, similar to the modern African elephant. Large males ranged grew to about 4 meters long and weighed up to 7 tons with tusks that could grow up to 4.25 meters long.
