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. This would make a phenomenal display piece laying alongside primitive hunting weapons of prehistoric man! Interesting brain case is highly detailed and fully visible! The color is a beautiful, rich dark walnut brown. This is THE ultimate affordable Aurochs fossil! This is a rare fossil from a beast that is seldom found in fossil collections..
