14.2" Palaeoloxodon (Mammoth Relative) Molar - Collector Quality!

 
 
 
 
 
 
This is a rare 14.2" long molar of Palaeoloxodon sp., a mammoth relative that's also known as a "bush elephant", collected from the Donau River gravel deposits of Serbia.

Fossils of Palaeoloxodon are much rarer than those of mammoths. Palaeoloxodon were large, straight-tusked relatives of mammoths. They often reached 4 meters (13 ft) in height and resembled modern day elephants. They preferred warm conditions and flourished in the interglacial periods during the Ice Age, spreading from continental Europe to Great Britain during the warmer periods. During colder periods, the species existed in southern regions of Europe. They became extinct in Britain by the beginning of the last glacial advance, about 115,000 years ago. Eventually they were replaced by mammoths.

This specimen includes a display stand.
