GIANT IRISH ELK ANTLER BASE SHOWING SCRATCH MARKS - PLEISTOCENE, NORTH SEA.


Megaceras giganteus Blumenbach.

Section of a shed antler from a Giant Irish Elk. The entire outer surface is covered in scratch or gnaw marks. In life antlers would have been covered in velveteen - a rich source of nutrients to a predator. The most likely candidate would be wolves. Really interesting specimen.

Pleistocene, Devensian.
Dredged from the Brown Bank, North Sea off Lowestoft.

Antler : 17 cm. long.
