North America, Pliocene to Pleistocene, ca. 100,000 to 20,000 years old. A beautiful fossilized molar from an adult mastodon (Mammut americanum). It has two extended roots remaining and five ridges now agatized in shades of white and grey. Mastodons, unlike mammoths or contemporary elephants, had cusp-shaped teeth, well-suited to their diet of browsing and grazing. This is probably from an individual who died at an older age, based on how worn down the surface of the tooth is. Size: 7" W x 4" H (17.8 cm x 10.2 cm)
