Woolly rhinoceros

Woolly rhinoceros (Coelodonta antiquitatis). Artist's impression of a woolly rhinoceros. This extinct mammal existed during the Pleistocene and Holocene epochs, 1.8 million years to 10, 000 years ago. It was widespread throughout the tundra of northern Eurasia until the end of the last Ice Age. It was well adapted to harsh cold conditions with thick, shaggy fur, small ears, short legs and a massive body to conserve heat loss. Cave paintings made by early humans 30, 000 years ago show woolly rhinoceros as well as other large mammals. The woolly rhinoceros grew up to 2 metres tall at the shoulder and 3.5 metres long. It had two horns, the longer, front horn reached up to 1 metre long

Mammoth

Mammoth. Artist's impression of a herd of mammoths (Mammuthus sp.). The mammoth was a large mammal adapted to the cold conditions of the Pleistocene Ice Age of some 2 million years ago. It ranged across North America, Europe and Asia. Its tusks could exceed 3 metres in length. Closely related to the elephant, it is depicted in cave paintings being hunted by drawings of early humans. The large mammoths went extinct some 10, 000 years ago with the retreat of the glaciers. Human predation is thought to have hastened their end
