When anything prehistoric is mentioned, a very select group of creatures comes to mind. One of these is the iconic Mammoth.

Mammoth fossil deposits have been found in every continent except Australia and South America and in early Holocene deposits of North America.

The woolly, Northern, or Siberian mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) is by far the best-known of all mammoths. The permanently frozen ground of Siberia has provided many preserved carcasses for study. Mammoths discovered preserved in the Siberian permafrost were believed to be burrowing animals that avoided sunlight and died when exposed to the sun. It was thought this explained why they showed so little decay. Remains of arctic plants have been found in the digestive tracts of frozen mammoth carcasses.
