For collectors of the finest grade fossil elephant material, this is a special offering. This is an impeccable set of two molar teeth, an upper and a lower from opposing sides of the mouth, from the same baby Mammut americanum or 'American' mastodon. The teeth are very small and would have come from a very tiny, baby Mastodon elephant. The color is spectacular with its ebony tone and gold highlights. The roots are not present because they had not formed yet. The luster is natural and spectacular. These teeth were found together and come from the same baby Mastodon.
This fine collection should be of special interest to anyone fascinated with the prehistoric development and lineage of the elephant in North America. Being from both, the upper and lower jaws, these make a valuable educational and reference set to compare anatomy of the different types of teeth found in both jaws. Both molars are complete crowns and in the most stunningly well-preserved state you could ask for.
