Interesting Fact # 583 – Mammoth Hair

Mammoth hair can be sold for $50 an inch on the black market.

(Seemingly specimens of this extinct species are traded in a lucrative market not just for hair, but ivory, skin, and other body parts. You know it’s true what they say, some people will buy anything. Actually my hair has a slightly woolly mammoth quality to it. I wonder how much I could flog it on eBay for.)
