Acanthoceratidae - Mammitinae

Framed Mammoth Hair In Acrylic 210mm

£122.00 GBP

Mammoth Hair In Acrylic block frame. Mammoth finds are sometimes quite well preserved, when frozen over quickly in the prehistoric tundra. However Mammoths have been found showing signs of scavenging, often missing some or all tissue, flesh the softer parts of the Caracas. These immensely large and heavy animals often became stuck in rivers margins, silts and boggy marshlands.

These sorts of terrain saw their demise, not able to gain freedom, only to slowly sink in the partly anoxic environment. Being starved of oxygen bacteria normally associated with rotting an animal's remains were stymied. This preserved the animal and gave us the unique opportunity of being able to eventually gain wonderful Mammoth coats. If the Mammoth Caracus had rotted out in the open the hair would be scattered by winds and water actions. In this instant, the frozen tundra encapsulated the remains and we at the Fossil Store have encapsulated the hair of the great Mammoth in our acrylic display block.

Parts of Mammoths are found scattered over great distances. Historic river patterns crossed the tundra cutting swaths and re-depositing tusks, teeth and bone remains within the silts where eddys or oxbow bends were formed in the river systems which later became frozen over entombing the remains in the time capsules of ice. Some discoveries show exceptional preservation, due to the environment and climate conditions which preserves Mammoth tissues and possibly DNA, as one recent discovery of a Mammoth is proving.

A remarkable acrylic glass block display of genuine Mammoth hair from the Siberian tundra of northern Russia, the hair held between two magnetic, clear lucite (acrylic) windows.
