Mammoths walked the earth during the last Ice Age, a period from about 100,000 to 10,000 years ago. Growing to weights of ten tons, they were the largest land animals of their time and were distinguished by enormous curling tusks that sometimes reached lengths of more than sixteen feet. A large variety of mammoth bones has been found in places ranging from gravel pits and coal mines to tar pits and the bottom of the sea. This book will focus on the natural history of mammoths, highlighting their physical features and adaptation to the environment. It will be 32 pages for children ages seven to ten and will be illustrated in full color.
