This is a real fossilized baby molar of a Shoveltusk Elephant (Platybelodon)! These fascinating creatures lived 10-15 million years ago and were distributed across Eurasia.

These animals are known for their elongated mandible (jaw) that allowed them to effectively shovel food into their mouths. It is theorized that stripping bark from trees could account for this unique adaptation.

This specimen measures 1.8" and worldwide shipping is available.
