5.0" Woolly Mammoth Knee Bone - Rhine River, Germany

 
 
This is a 5.0" fossil patella (Knee Bone) from a Woolly Mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius), from Rhine River, Germany and is between 20 and 50 thousand years old.

Comes with a 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.

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.
