Protected deep within a Pleistocene gravel deposit in Central Europe, this is a rare and highly uncommon fossil skull of an extinct late Aurochs (Bos primigenius / taurus). It is in remarkable condition considering the remaining fragile anatomy that survived both the last Ice Age and the dredge that brought it up. Entire skull has been chemically treated to preserve and protect its condition. While not totally complete, a good portion of the skull is present and more impressive is the fact that not a single bit of repair or restoration has been performed. Interesting brain case is highly detailed and fully visible! The color is a beautiful, rich dark walnut brown. This is one of the most affordable Ice Age skulls any fossil collection could include!
This fossil skull would make a great compliment to a primitive man stone tool and weapon collection as these animals lived alongside humans, played a vital role for resources in human survival during the last Ice Age and were hunted / revered by both Neanderthal man and Cro-Magnon man.
