Woolly mammoth axis vertebra
This is a large axis vertebra from a mammoth. The axis vertebra and the atlas allowed movement of the head as can be seen in the shape of this specimen. This is a very large and impressive specimen, but unfortunately, the bone is not intact and missing the dorsal process. Despite its size, this is surprisingly light as the bone is quite spongy as can be seen in the photographs.
Measurements 23cm x 21cm x 10cm and weight 1400g.
