This is one of the more unique fossilized teeth that we have in stock. The tip is in tact and the enamel is in good condition. The root has been restored (appx 1/2" of restoration) to show what the complete fossil would have looked like. A great specimen for those fascinated with marine-related fossils!
Measurements: ~3-3/4" long x 3/4" wide x 1/2" thick
Location: California, USA
Time Period: ~15 MYO
Pinnipeds (commonly known as seals) are carnivorous, semi-aquatic marine mammals. There are more than 50 extinct species of seals found from different fossils. Over time, their senses have developed to adapt to water and land living. Some examples are their eyesight, hearing, whiskers, and their fat layers/fur to keep warm in cold water.
In Honor of Memorial Day, the Shop will be Closed, Monday, May 31st.
Hi folks! COVID cases are down! So, we are allowed to have up to 25 people in the shop &15 people in the museum. However, on Saturdays, the museum will remain closed and used only as an area for those waiting to shop.
(However, if we're slow we can sneak you down there, if you like.)
For now, face covering & use of hand sanitizer are still required when entering.
We ask that people please not come in with large groups, and please limit their stays to under an hour, so others can have the opportunity to also do their shopping.
If we have customers in line, waiting to get in, please be aware of that and be considerate.
Thanks again for your continued understanding & support!
