Description: What a fascinating specimen! Imagine the thrill of holding this vertebra in your hand. The vertebrae are much lighter than teeth or tusk segments. It shows the cellular structure quite clearly. The story of how these mammoth remains were collected is fascinating. Dutch fishermen dredge them up while trawling for fish in the open seas. Strong tidal currents scour the sea bottom and release these fossils from their sandy graves. The specimens are specially treated to preserve and enhance their strength.
