Two Associated Oreodont Skulls On Rotating Stand
There is very little restoration on this piece, basically one small patch of erosion at the back of the lower skull which was restored.
Oreodonts (the common name for Merycoidodontoidea) are extinct mammals most closely related to camels and pigs, though they have no close relatives living today. They were herbivorous animals with short faces and fang-like canine teeth. About the size of a sheep, they roamed the plains of North America in huge numbers during the Oligocene period.
