Details

A very interesting juvenile woolly mammoth tooth 139mm displaying the characteristics of this genus of mega fauna from the ice age period. The enamel plates of the chewing washboard surface typically of the worn down, as the Mammoth chomped and chewed its way through the pleistocene epoch. The enamel plates are in good condition, overall the tooth displays typical attributes, excellent colour differential can be see in the enamel plates erupting on the chewing surface, as the softer enamel plates were worn down more quickly the harder enamel became more prominent, this effecting and relaying information about the habitat enabling a picture for palaeontologists today when unearthing specimen teeth in the frozen perma frost of the Siberian peninsulas or in the North Sea.


Juvenile or baby teeth are a much rarer find than adult teeth and from a palaeontologist or scientists point of view most interesting. Showing a glimpse into the early development of Mammoths in young age. For a collector these are also unique occasions to gain much rarer finds. This tooth represents a rarity therefore, the condition is excellent, the tooth has been preserved with an application of sealant to preserve it from decay. As these types of finds can be vulnerable when exposed to the air when found in a watery grave. This tooth has been dredged from the bottom of the North Sea near the coast of the Netherlands.
