Woolly mammoth

The woolly mammoth was an elephant-like creature that lived in Eurasia and North America and it was roughly the same size as modern African elephants just like the dire wolf was roughly the same size as modern gray wolves. Due to a combination of hunting and climate change, the last known mainland mammoths died in Siberia nearly 10,000 years ago. However isolated populations survived on Wrangel island in the arctic ocean until 4,000 years ago and the last mammoth died in 2,000 b.c. and in 2013, they found a mammoth found in ice with meat still fresh.
