Ice Age Mammoth
Will This Ancient Giant Come Back to Life?Book - 2001
The woolly mammoth was a massive beast weighing as much as 70 adult men and capable of consuming 90 kilos of food a day. Why it disappeared is a question scientists have been trying to answer for years. The well-preserved woolly mammoth now being studied may help scientists discover what doomed these magnificent beasts to extinction. Ice Age Mammoth covers everything from the discovery and preservation of this magnificent find to the evolution of the mammoth and its nearest living relative, the modern elephant.
