It lived during the Oligocene, 35 million years ago.
Oreodonts are an extinct mammal distantly related to pigs, camels, hippopotamuses, and peccaries.
Over 50 species have been described.
They grazed the grassland and praries of North America, mysteriosly disappearing during the Pliocene.
Oreodonts have large canine front teeth, and molars for chewing vegetation.
A very good price for such a specimen.
Incredible to own the skull of an animal that roamed the plains of America over 35m years ago.
A highly collectable piece, in superb condition.
