All Todays description on mammoth
Fossils of these large land mammals have been found throughout North America and Eurasia. They were one of the largest mammals of the late Cenozoic era and most likely lived in North America's and Eurasia's grasslands and forests. They were about the size of today's togars (gigantic grazing flightless birds). They had large tusks probably used for pulling down trees to feed on fruits and/or leaves. They were probably herd-dwellers much like elephants, which likely preferred warmer habitats such as rainforests and savannahs. They were likely cold-blooded and sluggish so therefore likely lived for 5,500 years due to their gigantic size and slow metabolism. They probably laid large eggs about the size of beach balls and the eggs probably hatched about 3-4 months after being laid. They probably became extinct due to competition from elephants (another extinct species) coming from their native ranges likely linked to climate changes.
