Let me begin by saying that this is a tusk of a young elephant and is in excellent condition. It is a mammoth tusk, Mammuthus Pre magenius. Found in Siberia, Russia.
This mammoth is known to most as a “woolly mammoth” which ranged across Asia, Europe and North America. It lived in the Interglacial period, Pleistocene 50 to 30,000 years ago. Because of the cold it’s skin developed a thick coat of matted hair. They grew to a height of 4.5 metres worked by cave-dwellers in Europe, who attacked and herded the animals over cliffs or killed them with large rope-swung stone hammers.
A number of the bodies of these mammals have been found intact due to the permafrost of Polar regions. Most became extinct toward the end of the Pleistocene.
What else can I say? Simply, it is lovely, stunning and well-worth the price. Do look at the photographs.
