On the Hunt

Figure.12  Wooly Mammoth.

This ferocious carnivore of the past preyed on a variety of different animals. Its victims included such animals as camels, horses, giant bison, rhinoceros, and mammoths. The larger prey of the sabre-tooth cat, like the mammoth, were probably not attacked as adults. It was most likely that the cat preyed on young mammoths due to the adult's great size and weight (www.lam.mus.ca.us/cats/C24/index.htm).
