Caption: Mammoth. Artist's impression of a herd of mammoths (Mammuthus sp.). The mammoth was a large mammal adapted to the cold conditions of the Pleistocene Ice Age of some 2 million years ago. It ranged across North America, Europe and Asia. Its tusks could exceed 3 metres in length. Closely related to the elephant, it is depicted in cave paintings being hunted by drawings of early humans. The large mammoths went extinct some 10,000 years ago with the retreat of the glaciers. Human predation is thought to have hastened their end.
