Steppe Bison, Aka Wisent - Fossil fragment - Bison priscus - 780 mm - 270 mm

Fossil paw of a real steppe bison in excellent condition, also known by the scientific name Bison Priscus. This animal was quite widespread, both geographically and numerically, it has lived starting from 600,000 years ago, and became extinct 7500 years ago. It lived in Europe, Asia and North America. Both fossil and mummified remains have been found, and one in particular is in such a good condition that it is still edible: in 1979, in an Alaska mine was found ‘Blue Babe’ (so-called for the blue colour due to the vivianite). This specimen dates back to 36,000 years ago, and a piece of its meat was excised and tasted by the researchers of the University of Alaska. Paw dimensions: 710 x 320 x 120 mm Dating: Pleistocene, 100,000 years ago. Origin: North Seas
