Caption: Fossil mammoth tooth. This is a mammoth molar, with the tooth root at left and the molar plate at right. This tooth probably belonged to a juvenile mammoth. Mammoths lived during the last Ice Age, and went extinct some 5000 years ago. They had six successive pairs of molars that were worn down and replaced during their lifetime. After the sixth pair had worn down, at about 60 years of age, the mammoth would die from starvation, unable to chew its food.
