Baby Mammoth molar Preperation


Recommended Posts

JorisVV

This would be my first Mammoth Molar I'm preparing again in 10 years. My first one was a 10lb Mammoth molar. This one is quite small of course since it's from a calf. It has been laying in right water for 1,5 months and at the moment I'm glueing the last 4 pieces since it's precision work with this small piece. I'm really glad I picked up on this one (Found in Maasvlakte, Netherlands).

I found it in pretty poor condition you guys can see in the pictures. But I have never seen this molar, so I'm amazed anyways!

 

I will show you guys the full picture when it is all done! :i_am_so_happy:

 

If anyone has tips too for my next prepairs, I will take any advice and tips!

Awesome find! Did you have to dig to uncover it? I'd love to see a picture of the 10lb tooth.

It was in the sand back in the beach. One on the picture is my heaviest (11LB by the way). The size is compared 4'75 inch megalodon

You do realize, don't you, that the mammoth tooth in the image is upside down.  That is the root of the tooth you are presenting.

I know. I am waiting on a custom standard. Since it's so heavy and big I had to now

It's 28 cm on the biggest side. It's a pretty heavy one around 11,02LBS
