THE WOOLLY MAMMOTH  ~250 000

The woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius), also called the tundra mammoth, is an extinct species of mammoth. This animal is known from bones and frozen carcasses from northern North America and northern Eurasia with the best preserved carcasses in Siberia. This mammoth species was first recorded in (possibly 150,000 years old) deposits of the second last glaciation in Eurasia. They were derived from steppe mammoths (Mammuthus trogontherii).

It disappeared from most of its range at the end of the Pleistocene (10,000 years ago), with a dwarfed race still living on Wrangel Island until roughly 1700 BCE. (click to see all the article on Wikipedia) 

長毛猛瑪象 ~25萬年前

長毛猛瑪象(真猛瑪象),也被稱為凍原猛瑪象,是一種已經滅絕的猛瑪物種。在北美洲及歐亞大陸北部所發現的骨頭及被冰凍的屍體,而為人所知,保存狀況最好的在西伯利亞。

這猛瑪物種發現最早的(可能溯及15萬年前),存在於歐亞大陸的第二次末冰期。他們源自於草原猛瑪象(草原猛瑪象)。

在更新世(1萬年前)時,長毛猛瑪象從其大多數的分佈地消失了,而有一族矮小化的長毛猛瑪象,於西元前1700年存在於弗蘭格爾島。
