This November 2019 video says about itself:
Experts say the last mammoths died out just 3600 years ago…but they should have survived. We usually think of woolly mammoths as purely Ice Age creatures. But while most did indeed die out 10,000 years ago, one tiny population endured on isolated Wrangel Island until 1650 BCE. Geneticists have sketched out the woolly mammoth’s family tree using ancient DNA found preserved in Siberia.
The extinct beasts are more closely related to Asian elephants than to African elephants, the researchers found, and the three species diverged within a surprisingly short period of time. In this video, we showcase and explain to you the 15 largest and biggest extinct elephants and mammoths.
Hey there my friend!! I loved this elephant post and thought that you may like a story that I posted to my blog, Good Time Stories” a little while ago called “The Day They Remembered.” A great little story about elephants. https://mygoodtimestories.com/2015/02/18/the-day-they-remembered/
Thanks for the link! I will have a look 🙂
