mammoth definition and meaning

What is a "Mammoth"?

Mammoths were a group of herbivorous mammals that lived during the Ice Age. They were similar in size to modern-day elephants and had long, curved tusks that could reach up to 15 feet long. They had a thick coat of fur to keep them warm in the cold climate, and they lived in herds. Mammoths were found all over the world, from Europe to North America to Asia. They became extinct around 4,000 years ago, likely due to a combination of climate change and human hunting. Despite their extinction, mammoths continue to captivate our imaginations and have even been the subject of attempts to bring them back to life through cloning.
