Welcome to my online learning centre about mammals of the Pleistocene Ice Age. The Pleistocene took place from 1.8 million years ago up until 11,000 years ago. The mammals which lived in this epoch were amazing creatures with the ability to adapt to a very harsh climate. The Pleistocene also saw the evolution and expansion of our own species, Homo sapiens, and by the close of the Pleistocene, humans had spread through most of the world. These are just a few interesting facts about this time period; Click on the buttons on the left to navigate through the site.
