Woolly Mammoth Tooth sliced and polished pair from Siberia.
A mammoth is any species of the extinct elephantid genus Mammuthus, one of the many genera that make up the order of trunked mammals called proboscideans. The various species of mammoth were commonly equipped with long, curved tusks and, in northern species, a covering of long hair. They lived from the Pliocene epoch (from around 5 million years ago) into the Holocene at about 4,000 years ago, and various species existed in Africa, Europe, Asia, and North America. This tooth was found in the North Sea. It dates back to the Pleistocene period (2.5 M – 9,500 YA)
