Woolly rhinoceros

Woolly rhinoceros (Coelodonta antiquitatis). Artist's impression of a woolly rhinoceros. This extinct mammal existed during the Pleistocene and Holocene epochs, 1.8 million years to 10, 000 years ago. It was widespread throughout the tundra of northern Eurasia until the end of the last Ice Age. It was well adapted to harsh cold conditions with thick, shaggy fur, small ears, short legs and a massive body to conserve heat loss. Cave paintings made by early humans 30, 000 years ago show woolly rhinoceros as well as other large mammals. The woolly rhinoceros grew up to 2 metres tall at the shoulder and 3.5 metres long. It had two horns, the longer, front horn reached up to 1 metre long
