A plastic pouch containing a good pinch of genuine Siberian Woolly Mammoth hair, alongside bits of plant material, dust, sand and general mystery detritus, as discovered, recovered and collected from the Yukatian Siberian Permafrost.
Pouch measures approximately 80x60mm. You will receive a pouch similar to the one in the photographs, which gives a good indication of the hair you will receive, along with the pictured information slip. A great little gift for a mammoth fan or collector!
Genuine Woolly Mammoth Hair Sample
The woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) is an extinct species of mammoth that lived during the Pleistocene until its extinction in the early Holocene epoch. It was one of the last in a line of mammoth species, beginning with Mammuthus subplanifrons in the early Pliocene. The woolly mammoth diverged from the steppe mammoth about 400,000 years ago in East Asia. Its closest extant relative is the Asian elephant. The appearance and behaviour of this species are among the best studied of any prehistoric animal because of the discovery of frozen carcasses in Siberia and Alaska, as well as skeletons, teeth, stomach contents, dung, and depiction from life in prehistoric cave paintings.
