Bone Fossils of Mammoths
Mammoths lived between about 100,000 and 10,000 years ago and were as tall as 3-4 meters, and each of their bodies was covered with fluff and half-a-meter-long deep brown thick hair. About 10,000 years ago when the cold glacial time ended, but they couldn’t adapt to the warmer climate and gradually migrated and died out.
