Fossilized Mastodon Tusk “Partial” (062923h)

  • Name: Mastodon americanum  – Tusk Section (Not completely round – 1/2 of round)
  • Age: Late Pleistocene – 65,000 – 11000 yrs
  • Location: San Jacinto County, Texas
  • “Partial” Tusk Section  – If the circumference was complete, it would be 23 inches  – 9.5 inches in Length – Weighs 7 pounds!
  • * This section has distinctive Bite Marks from a small Rodent on its surface
  • The Mastodon tusks were massive in size, more straight than curved,  and the surface texture was more course than the mammoth tusks. Considering the massive size and the total mineralization of these specimens we have, including the ivory layer, I would expect these to be at the oldest 65000 age end of their existence here.
