This is a rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful set of a fossil upper incisor tooth and a lower tusk of an Ice Age wild boar, Sus scrofa. These were brought up with many other Ice Age fossils such as rhino, Megaloceros, mammoth and reindeer, during a construction operation alongside the Maas River of the Netherlands, many years ago. The tusk and tooth are complete and in stunning preservation having been retrieved from deep within a clay and gravel Pleistocene layer.
The wild boar was a dangerous and formidable game animal, hunted by prehistoric humans in the last Ice Age. Images of the boar have been found on some of the earliest prehistoric art and cave paintings in Europe.
