Prehistoric jaguar jaw bone. This fossil jaw bone is from the extinct European jaguar (Panthera gombaszoegensis). It was found in 1990 at the TD-4 level in the Gran Dolina cave in the Sierra de Atapuerca foothills near Burgos, Spain. This level is around 800,000 years old. The limestone caves in these hills, containing many prehistoric fossils and artefacts, have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
