  • History

    Scientists have learned a great deal about woolly mammoths from the several carcasses that have been found locked in ice. They were perfectly adapted to their ice age time period, with a long coat, fine underwool and a thick layer of fat beneath. If their three-meter height at the shoulders wasn’t big enough, some mammoth tusks have measured four meters! The woolly mammoth likely entered North America via the Bering Strait during a period of low seawater due to ice. A warming world and human hunting eventually spelled doom for these massive beasts, which died out around 10,000 years ago. However, a few specimens are thought to have survived on remote Alaskan and Russian islands until 3000-5000 years ago.
