Woolly mammoth, Mammuthus primigenius. Best known and most characteristic animal of the Ice Age. The elephant, about 12 feet in average height was characterised by its relatively large head and unusually long curved tusks. Its body was covered by long, dense hair. Specimens found in frozen ground of Siberia and abundant remains occur in North America. Moore, 1958, p. 550.
