Transcript of Elephants V.S. Mammoths

What's the difference? Mammoths versus Elephants This is a chart showing what types of elephants, mammoths and mastodons lived during what time. From 38 million years ago to just 10 thousand years ago
WOOOOOOOOOW! This is a scale showing how big we are to a mammoth, a mastodon, and an elephant! WOW! They were humongous! Take note that
Mammoths are
NOT closely related to Mastodons "Imagine teeth as big as a shoe box.....and six sets of teeth over a lifetime!” - from http://www.mammothsite.com/mammoth_info.html WOW FACT: http://www.cdm.org/mammothdiscovery/eat.asp https://sites.google.com/a/verona.k12.wi.us/elephants-and-mammoths/ To my website This is a Mastodon! DID YOU KNOW THAT MAMMOTHS ARE TECHNICALLY A SPECIES OF ELEPHANTS? YAY By : Melanie M. Conway " Many Woolly Mammoths have been discovered intact in permafrost.

The northern reaches of Siberia are very, very cold--which helps to explain the amazing number of Woolly Mammoths that have been found mummified, near-intact, in solid blocks of ice. Discovering and hacking out these corpses is the easy part; what's harder is to keep the remains from disintegrating once they reach room temperature!

10. It may be possible to clone a Woolly Mammoth.

Because Woolly Mammoths went extinct relatively recently, and were closely related to modern elephants, scientists may one day be able to harvest the DNA of Mammuthus primigenius and incubate a fetus in a living pachyderm. Unfortunately, this same trick wouldn't work for dinosaurs, since DNA doesn't preserve well over tens of millions of years." FROM:http://dinosaurs.about.com/od/otherprehistoriclife/a/Woolly-Mammoth-Facts.htm In Europe... When mammoth bones were first found in Europe,
they were believed to be the bones of giants! http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/life/Mammoth#p00bxklg video!
