Curatorial Curiosities

Cave bear canine

Cave bear canine: Ursus spelaeus was a common European bear during the ice ages, it was at least equivalent in size to the largest of modern bears, the Polar bear (Ursus maritimus) and Kodiak bear (Ursus arctos middendorffi), if not larger. Their remains are found most commonly in caves, and this specimen was found in Wookey Hole in the Mendips, Somerset.
