3D photo presents Mammuthus (or mammoth), a genus of Pleistocene elephants that were adapted to steppe and tundra habitats. The tusks were elongated and strongly curved, and the skull was shorter and higher than that of other elephants. The woolly mammoth was adapted to Arctic environments.
For example the remains of mammoths were long familiar to Siberian aboriginals who often encountered remains along the banks of rivers and sold their tusks for the ivory trade. This 3D photo presents Mammuthus Skeleton in Moscow’s Paleontologic Museum.
In comparison with mammoth the modern elephants look like elephant calves. It is considered that the largest mammoth, indeed the largest proboscidean of all time to be the one found in Eurasia, which stood about 4.5 m at the shoulder. But other sources mention the mammoth lived on the territory of the present day China about quarter a million years ago which reached 5.3 m at the shoulder.
A nearly complete pygmy mammoth fossil skeleton, found in 1994, is providing new insight into this poorly known animal.
