QUATERNARY-Upper Pleistocene (0.01–0.12 million years)
|Object:||Woolly Mammoth Hair - Siberia|
|Scientific name:||Mammuthus primigenius|
|Geological Period:||QUATERNARY-Upper Pleistocene (0.01–0.12 million years)|
Original mammoth hair of a woolly mammoth from the Pleistocene of Siberia.
The fossil hair was found in the permafrost of Taimyr in Siberia.
The hairs are orange red in colour (a few hairs are black!!). It concerns both long hair (the thicker dark hairs that formed the outside of the fur, and the orange-coloured hair that was close to the skin to immediately insulate the mammoth well against the cold).
These hairs are at least 10,000 years old and preserved thanks to the preservation in the frozen soil, which is unique. It may contain small pieces of skin. There is also a piece of flora/vegetation and a piece of permafrost included, clay now with no doubt also micro fossils like pollen in it!
The fossil hairs come in a plastic box.
Will be sent at the buyer’s expense.
