ABSTRACT
Mammoth, an extinct animal related to and resembling the elephant. Mammoths were abundant during the Ice Age. Several species have been identified. The earliest, the flat-browed mammoth, appeared in Africa, Europe, and Asia about 5,000,000 years ago. Another early species was the southern mammoth of Europe and Asia. Later species were the imperial mammoth of western North America and the woolly, or Siberian, mammoth of central Europe, northern Asia, and North America.
