The woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius), also called the tundra mammoth, is an extinct species of mammoth. This animal is known from bones and frozen carcasses from northern North America and northern Eurasia with the best preserved carcasses in Siberia.

This mammoth species was first recorded in (possibly 150,000 years old) deposits of the second last glaciation in Eurasia. They were derived from steppe mammoths  (Mammuthus trogontherii).

It disappeared from most of its range at the end of the Pleistocene, with a dwarfed race still living on Wrangel Island until roughly  1700 B.C.



(Mammuthus primigenius), 

also called the tundra mammoth, is an extinct species.

Age:  Late Pleistocene, 150,000 to 10,000 years.

This animal is known from bones and frozen carcasses from northern North America and northern Eurasia with the best preserved carcasses in Siberia. They are perhaps the most well known species of mammoth.

This mammoth species was first recorded in (possibly 150,000 years old) deposits of the 2nd last glaciation in Eurasia.  They were derived from steppe mammoths (Mammuthus trogontherii).

It disappeared from most of its range at the end of the Pleistocene era (10,000 years ago), with a dwarfed race still living on Wrangel Island until roughly 1700 B.C.

pieces to choose from!

Considered "mineralized" at 10,000 years old, are solid enough to be carved or scrimshawed.  Many have the rough outer "bark" that makes it resemble a tree branch but believe it, it's all ivory!
