Additional Information: The Woolly Mammoth lived during the Pleistocene that was 2.58 Million to 11,700 years ago. This mammoth had large ivory tusks and is related to an extinct elephant genus and was about the size of today's African Elephants. The woolly mammoth coexisted with early humans who hunted these animals for food. However, they became extinct at the end of the Pleistocene probably because of climate change and hunting. The woolly mammoth ivory, teeth and bones I use comes from Siberia. Most of these fossils come from native people who collect them on river banks and from various digging sites.

The Poplar wood sold in the United States comes from trees that are in the magnolia family. The trees growth range spans from the Mississippi River to the east coast of the United States. It may not be surprising to find that the wood from poplar trees was used extensively for buildings in that area between the 18th and 20th centuries. Poplar is considered a utility wood and is one of the most common utility hardwoods in the United States. It is often used  for pallets, crates, furniture, paper, kitchen cabinets, doors, paneling, moulding and millwork. This particular piece provides a nice contrast to the Fossil Woolly Mammoth Bone.
