Woolly Mammoth Tooth - Riker Box Specimens

Woolly Mammoth Tooth - Riker Box Specimens

A full-grown woolly mammoth, just one species of the genus Mammuthus, stood 10 to 12 feet (3 to 3.5 m) at the shoulder, with a shaggy coat of hair. The woolly mammoth's hair provided a substantial advantage in the struggle to stay warm.

Their high-crowned molars were pleated with ridges of enamel: somewhat similar to the dentition of the modern Asian elephant, but distinct from the fewer, diamond-shaped, enamel plates of the African elephant. The morphology of mammoth teeth and the distribution of mammoth remains suggests mammoths were predominantly grazers subsisting mainly upon grasses and sedges, a diverse biomass that the modern Arctic tundra doesn’t approach.

This specimen is a fragment of a Woolly Mammoth fossilized tooth that was recovered from the bottom of the North Sea, in an area referred to as "Doggerland." The item is housed in a glass-topped riker display box measuring 4x3x1" and comes with a small photo card that also serves as a certificate of authenticity. The size can vary but is generally around 1/2 inch.
