Description: Large fossilized Stegodon head, exhibiting a double row of upper palate teeth and stubs of tusks. Stegodon, meaning “roofed tooth”, is a genus of the extinct subfamily Stegodontinae of the order Proboscidea. It was assigned to the family Elephantidae, similar to modern-day elephants and were likely good swimmers, as their fossils are encountered on Asian islands. Stegodon is considered to be a sister group of the mammoth, as well as elephants. Their molars consist of a series of low, roof shape ridges, whereas in elephants each ridge has become a high-crowned plate. Furthermore, stegodonts were more robust and compact than elephants. A nice example with overall areas of surface encrustation.
Provenance: Collection of Mary K. F. Leong, WA., 1980-1990s, acquired from Kalidua Gallery with original invoice.

National: $125.00
