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 it is INTACT WITH NO REPAIR OR RESTORATION.
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 brown. This is THE ultimate affordable Aurochs fossil! This is a rare fossil from a beast that is seldom found in fossil collections..
This would make a phenomenal display piece laying alongside primitive hunting weapons of prehistoric man! The color is natural and is a rich dark coffee brown. This is THE ultimate Late Aurochs fossil and one of the most affordable ALL NATURAL Ice Age skulls any fossil collection could include! This is a rare fossil from a beast that is seldom found in Late Pleistocene fossil collections. 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.
