Thanks to frozen carcasses with skeletons, stomach contents, tusks and now liquid blood left intact — as well as cave painting depictions by our human ancestors — scientists know more about the woolly mammoth than any other prehistoric animal. Here are ten facts about the magnificent woolly mammoth, Mammuthus primigenius, to help ignite your imagination.

FUN FACTS ABOUT WOOLY MAMMOTHS:

  •  Contrary to common belief, the woolly mammoth was hardly mammoth in size. They were roughly about the size of modern African elephants.
  • The ears of a woolly mammoth were shorter than the modern elephant’s ears.  Like their thick coat of fur, their shortened ears were an important cold-weather adaptation.
  • Scientists can discern a woolly mammoth’s age from the rings of its tusk, like looking at the rings of a tree.
  • The woolly mammoth was not the only “woolly” type of animal. The woolly rhinoceros, also known as the Coelodonta, co-existed with the woolly mammoth.
  • Cave paintings drawn by ice age humans show the important relationship they had with the woolly mammoths.
  • Today, the hunt is on for woolly mammoth tusks in the Arctic Siberia. Due to global warming, the melting permafrost has begun revealing these hidden ivory treasures for a group of local tusk-hunters to find and sell at around $400 a pound!
  • The first fully documented woolly mammoth skeleton was discovered in 1799. 
  • The coat of a woolly mammoth consisted of a “guard” of foot long hairs, and an undercoat of shorter hairs.
  • Even a kid can discover a preserved mammoth.  In September 2012 in Russia, an 11-year-old boy happened upon an extremely well-preserved woolly mammoth carcass while walking his dogs.
  • The final resting place of woolly mammoths was Wrangel Island in the Arctic. Although, most of the woolly mammoth population died out by 10,000 years ago, a small population of 500-1000 woolly mammoths lived on Wrangel Island until 1650 BC.
