An alleged photo, taken in Siberia

The Woolly Mammoth, alongside T. Rex, is one of the most famous prehistoric animals ever. It lived during the last ice age, roughly 10,000 years ago. It supposedly went extinct, due to rising temperatures, dropping food sources, or human predation. However, a large, hairy elephant has been seen in Canada and Siberia numerous times, leading people to believe that a small population survived.

Appearance & DescriptionEdit

The woolly mammoth resembles a large elephant covered in brown hair. The ears are smaller (to conserve body heat). The tail is short, and the back is humped.

Theories/Explanations Edit

While hoaxes are the only theory generally accepted by science, the woolly mammoth is thought by some to be a surviving member of the family of its namesake: mammoths.
