Prehistoric Cave Bear Cub Jaw Bone
Prehistoric 30.000 y/o pleistocene cave bear cub jaw bone – ‘Ursus spelaeus’
The Cave Bear was a massive omnivore that lived in Europe during the Pleistocene period and became extinct around 28,000 years ago.
This enormous animal is thought to be a relative to today’s brown bear but it was significantly larger.
Adult males averaged half a ton in weight, and when standing on their hind legs they were up to 10 feet tall!
That would put them comparably in size to the largest of modern-day Kodiak and Polar bears.
This jaw used to belong to a cub that must have died at a very young age.
The bone has been found inside a cave, deep into the Carpathian mountains.
An unique and very decorative piece that would fit perfectly into your collection or cabinet of curiosities!
The jaw remains in damaged condition.
All of the molar teeth are missing, just its grown canine, that has not yet swapped, still remains inside the front of the jaw.
