The mammoth stood over 12 feet tall, reached a length of 3 metres and weighed over 10,000 pounds. Mammoths which lived during the Pleistocene in a cold climate, had long, thick, shaggy hair. It's primary diet consisted mainly of grasses.

The first North American Mammoths migrated from Asia to Alaska about 2 million years ago, and by about 1.6 million years ago mammoths inhabited the tundra of North America, Europe and Asia. The Mammoth is believed to have died out 11,000 years ago.
