Mammoth

Mammoth: Large animal, resembling modern day elephant. Emerged during the Cenozoic era. The wooly mammoth stood two to three metres high at the shoulder and had a high domed head, long sloping back and body covered with dense black hair. It was numerous in glaciated north America but may have been hunted to extinction by early man, dying out about 10 000 years ago.
