Wild boars are an invasive species in the Americas and cause problems including out-competing native species for food, destroying the nests of ground-nesting species, killing fawns and young domestic livestock, destroying agricultural crops, eating tree seeds and seedlings, destroying native vegetation and wetlands through wallowing, damaging water quality and coming into violent conflict with humans and pets.
Humans have been hunting boar for millennia, the earliest artistic depictions of such activities dating back to the Upper Paleolithic. The animal was seen as a source of food among the Ancient Greeks, as well as a sporting challenge and source of epic narratives.
Every vertebra has a body, which consists of a large anterior middle portion called the centrum (plural centra) and a posterior vertebral arch, also called a neural arch. In many cases the specimen is young and the bones have not fused together.
We have taken these unique pieces and matched them to one another as close as we can. No two are alike. Just like you and me.
These earrings measure 2" long including finding and beads. The centrum measures 3/4" by 5/8" approximately.
