The woolly mammoth were genetically similar to modern elephants, and most of them died out during the Pleistocene period. These extinct members of the elephant family were hebivores, and needed huge amounts of plants to keep themselves alive (since they usually weighed about 6-8 tons each). Woolly mammoths had thick layers of shaggy hair, which is probably what helped them adapt to the ice age. Frozen carcasses have been found in northern North America and northern Eurasia and Siberia. Learn more about this fascinating mammal through this detailed woolly mammoth anatomy model. It will benefit any teacher wanting to have a cool demonstration model to teach about this creature, and also helps out the student needing a good visual aid for their project on woolly mammoths!
