For sale are the skeletons of an adult female Woolly Mammoth together with the skeleton of a baby Woolly Mammoth. The female skeleton consists of approximately 185 bones and skeletal parts. All bones of the skeleton are of the same preservation and colour, and were found in the same locality. All bones are original; restoration is less than 10%. The tusks are superb and original!
Remains of juvenile Mammoth are extremely rare. They are seldom recorded. Often, these skeletal parts have been eaten by carnivorous animals such as cave hyena's and wolves. Another problem is that bones of juvenile Mammoths are not yet fused and cosist of many small parts which will fall apart after dying (for example vertebrae). Complete skeletons of baby Mammoth are not found in Europe. Therefore we have made a scientific combination between original bones and casts. The casts of the baby Mammoth are from the baby skeleton of Niederwenigen, Switzerland, which by the way consists of less original bones then our skeleton! In the accompanying drawings we coloured the orignal parts red. We have chosen to show the casted parts in a different colour then the original bones. However if wanted the casts can be recoloured.
North Sea Fossils is proud to be one of the very very few companies in the world who can deliver complete skeletons. We have assembled a number of complete ~Mammoths already to international museums.
