Presented here is a large partial right mandible jaw with original teeth, from the extinct European Giant Deer Megaloceros giganteus (aka Irish Elk). This is the anterior section with FIVE molars and pre-molars in perfect preservation, still attached in the bone. The pre-molars are still unerupted, showing this came from a juvenile Megaloceros. A great fossil for display or to reconstruct a jaw for a skull. Fine grade fossils of this massive beast are difficult to find in today's market.
From an animal that is almost never found in private fossil collections or even public museums. This specimen would also make a great compliment to a primitive man stone tool and weapon collection as they lived alongside each other in prehistory at one point, and were hunted and revered by both Neanderthal man and Cro-Magnon man.
