Click to enlarge   Name Equus ferus (Stunning quality Horse Jaw))
  ref VERT915
  This wonderfully preserved fossil was discovered in 1973 in this iconic English gravel quarry which abandoned its production and backfilled soon after. The detail on the bone and teeth are absolutely stunning. Substantial Bricket Wood fossils are rare on the open market. This lower jaw is approximately 50,000 years old and the horse it belonged to was an odd-toed ungulate mammal belonging to the taxonomic family Equidate. The horse has evolved over the past 45 to 55 million years from a small multi toed creature to Eohippus. This fossil jaw belonged to a juvenile horse and would make a serious statement piece in any collection or home environment. Also anybody interested in anything equine.
