Cave Bear Tooth, Ursus Speleaus, Pleistocene, Romania

Cave Bear Molar
Ursus speleaus
Pleistocene, 80,000 yrs
These Cave Bear fossils are found in caves in Romania. The reasonable speculation for their demise is that the bears went into hibernation but they never saw the following Spring. During the very harshest Ice Age winters, Spring did not always come and the bears are thought to have perished where they slept.
This specimen is a molar that would have been the 2nd last tooth in the bear's lower mandible.
