Caption: Mammoth. Artist's impression of a mammoth (Mammuthus sp.). The mammoth was a large mammal adapted to the cold conditions of the Pleistocene ice ages between 2 million and around 10,000 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 hunt scences in cave paintings made by 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.
