Woolly Mammoth Bone Fragments

A small piece of Woolly Mammoth bone, dating from the Pleistocene. These pieces show a good amount of ‘spongy’ bone.


Woolly Mammoth Bone Fragments

These are Woolly Mammoth bone fragments, an interesting object which may particularly appeal to children.

I personally think this would make a decent teaching piece, alongside a more complete piece of Mammoth bone.

Our current stock comes from the North Sea off Holland. They are pieces from Mammathus primigenius, from the Pleistocene - between 10000 and 100000 years old. They are best described as "stable, but fragile" - they are better for display than for being handled. They often have a 'face' of cortical (hard/compact) bone and plenty of visible trabecular (spongy) bone visible.
