Mastodon Tooth

Product description

Really excellent Mastodon Tooth from Szechwan, China, with great enamel in hues of white and blue. It hails from the Middle Pleistocene, and is 750,000 years old. The tooth is a complete crown with root partials.
They were much shorter and stouter than the Mammoths, and their teeth are very different in appearance to those of their close relatives the Stegodon, and Mammoth. Their teeth were more suited to a forest environment, where they ate tough vegetation like twigs, leaves, shrubs, and pine cones.
 
Mastodon teeth are much rarer than Mammoth teeth, and in many parts of the world it is becoming much harder to gain access to find these specimens.
 
A really nice addition to a collection.
This piece can be mounted for better display.
