Woolly Mammoth Pictures

Updated on May 6, 2010

Woolly mammoth

 Woolly Mammoths also known as tundra mammoth and was closely related to today's Asian elephants. It has long dark black hair, curved tusks, fatty hump, long nose and big ears. Wooly mammoth size is about 11.5 feet long, 9.5 feet tall and weighed about 3 tons. Woolly mammoths lived in the tundras of Asia, Europe and North America. Scientific name of woolly mamoth is mammuthus primigenius. Woolly mammoth went extinct around 13,000 years ago. Ancestors of mammoths originated in equatorial Africa around 7 million years ago. Woolly mammoths also known as bones, frozen carcasses from the permafrost of Siberia, and through ancient art.

 To understand how the mammoth tolerated the extreme cold, scientists used ancient DNA to rebuild mammoth blood. Mammoth blood contains special cold adaptations that helped to survive in the Arctic. The oxygen carrying molecules in the blood of woolly mammoths was adapted to survive extreme cold. Mammoths had more than woolly coats to protect them from the frigid conditions of their sub-zero stomping grounds. The extinct beasts had a form of antifreeze blood. It kept mammoth bodies supplied with oxygen in the sub-zero temperatures, according to a study of DNA extracted from 43,000-year-old mammoth remains. Below you will find some of the woolly mammoth pictures.

      First off how do people know what Woolly Mammoths looked like before the Ice Age began I understand they found frozen Mammoths but maybe their fur changed by the climate of the ice.Because by my calculation's no one was alive when they were.
