Camel tooth

Product description

This is a terrific quality incisor tooth from the extinct camel, Camelops hesternus, which first appeared in the Late Pliocene, around 3 m yrs, and became extinct at the end of the Pleistocene, some 10,000 years ago. The tooth was discovered in Arizona, USA.
Camelops had a similar build to the modern day Bacterian Camel, but was a little taller, standing 7 feet at the shoulder, and possibly lacking humps.
It is thought it was an opportunistic herbivore, eating any plants that were around.
It was more closely related to the Llama than to the camels of today.
 
A great addition to a collection, and in perfect condition.
