Large Mammoth Jaw
Mammuthus primigenius
Pleistocene
North America

A complete lower jaw with all original teeth is presented in nice condition. The teeth of these herbivorous ice age giants grew in enamel plates with the top of the tooth exhibiting its characteristic grooves: the rear tooth grew from the top down in the lower jaw, following the curve of the lower jaw and growing in sections of enamel plates. The deep brown patina of the specimen is due to mineral seepage from the permafrost in which the specimen was buried for tens of thousands of years. Measures 26 x 20 x 17in
