Woolly Rhinoceros femur bone
Femur bone of a woolly rhinoceros. This is a really large and impressive fossil. These beasts roamed the country about 50,000 years ago. Their bones still lie preserved in the sediments of the North Sea which is where this fossil was found. You can still see a few small barnacle plates in the joint.
This is the leg bone and as you can see it is a massive bone which was necessary to support the weight of these animals. Unfortunately this specimen is not intact although the majority of it is still here. This would make a really impressive addition to any collection from and interesting and unfortunately extinct animal.
Length 43cm x width 17cm x depth 14cm. Weight 2400g
