MAMMOTH HAIR
(LARGE SAMPLE)

Up to 40,000 years old

Genuine hair of a woolly mammoth from the permafrost in Yacutia, Siberia.

 
The mammoth’s fur consisted of long, coarse outer hairs with shorter, thinner hairs as a dense, insulating undercoat.  The mammoth was supremely adapted to its environment with all parts of its body covered in fur, with hair from a few centimeters to over 90 cm (3 feet) long.  The hair is found with frozen carcasses of mammoths up to 40,000 years old.

This is a large sample of hair. It is provided in a plastic display box with glass lid.


Please note:  Smaller samples of mammoth hair are available.
