From back in the days when people actually cooked their dinners instead of opening a box (our family still does). (5 years and 1048 days ago)

This is a section of Wooly Mammoth tusk. Mammoths lived from about 150,000 years ago to around 1,700 B.C. It is thought to be the first species where man contributed to extinction through over hunting (along with climate change). Tusks could grow to 15 or 16 feet (4.5 meters) long and weigh hundreds of pounds. This section is about 4 inches (10 cm) across and 15 inches (38 cm) long. The tusks were also similar to trees in that you can count the "rings" to determine how old they were when they died (the outside layer is even called the "bark"). This was a very young mammoth, only about 11 years old. They were known to live to about 50-60 years old. It is against the law in most areas to own ivory, but prehistoric ivory is perfectly legal. I got this specimen for my fossil collection about 20 years ago, it's approximately 50,000 years old. (5 years and 1050 days ago)

I have had this for longer than I can remember it came from my grandmothers house, perhaps even her mothers.
It was certainly dirty and dusty, but this contest got it all shined up. (5 years and 1049 days ago)
