Caption

Woolly mammoths. Artist's impression of a herd of woolly mammoths (Mammuthus sp.) during the peak of the ice age, 70,000 to 10,000 years ago. Woolly mammoths were large mammals which lived during the ice age and whose range included North America, Europe and Asia. Their tusks could exceed 3 metres in length. Closely related to the elephant, these animals have been found depicted in cave paintings featuring hunting scenes. 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.
