Caption: Woolly rhinoceros and mammoth skeletons. View of an exhibition hall showing mounted skeletons of prehistoric extinct large mammals. In the fore- ground is the skeleton of a woolly rhinoceros (Coelodonta antiquitatis) with two large horns on its skull seen at lower right. This specimen lived 20, 000 years ago. Its bones were discovered in Yakutia, Russia. The woolly rhinoceros coexisted with the woolly mammoth Mammuthus primigenius (in the background) mainly in Asia. A large upcurved tusk of the mammoth is seen. Both of these large mammals were grazers, and adapted for a cold climate by being covered in thick hair.
