The picture represents Woolly Mamooth. Mammoths are extinct elephant-like animals that were adapted to cold weather. They are herbivores. Their fossils found in Europe, Africa, Asia, and North America. Mammoths lived during the Pleistocene epoch from 1.6 million to about 10,000 years ago. Most mammoths died out at the end of the last Ice Age. These creatures are hunted by humans for food, their skin is used to protect from cold. Their body is covered with thick layer of shaggy hair, up to 50 cm (20 in) long. The tusks were used in mating rituals, for protection, and for digging in the snow for food.
