Mammoth. Artists impression of a herd of mammoths (Mammuthus sp.)

Mammoth. Artists impression of a herd of mammoths (Mammuthus sp.). The mammoth was a large mammal adapted to the cold conditions of the Pleistocene Ice Age of some 2 million years ago. It ranged across North America, Europe and Asia. Its tusks could exceed 3 metres in length. Closely related to the elephant, it is depicted in cave paintings being hunted by drawings of early humans. The large mammoths went extinct some 10, 000 years ago with the retreat of the glaciers. Human predation is thought to have hastened their end

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases an artist's vivid imagination of a magnificent herd of mammoths, providing us with a glimpse into the prehistoric world. The mammoth, a colossal mammal perfectly adapted to endure the harsh conditions of the Pleistocene Ice Age, once roamed across vast territories in North America, Europe, and Asia. With their tusks reaching astonishing lengths exceeding 3 meters, these gentle giants closely resembled elephants and were often depicted in ancient cave paintings being hunted by early humans. Sadly, this awe-inspiring species met its demise approximately 10,000 years ago as the glaciers retreated. While natural causes played a role in their extinction, it is believed that human predation may have accelerated their decline. This thought-provoking artwork serves as a reminder of our planet's rich evolutionary history and the delicate balance between humanity and nature. The intricate illustration beautifully captures not only the physical characteristics but also evokes emotions associated with these majestic creatures. As we gaze upon this image filled with wonderment at their sheer size and presence against an icy backdrop reminiscent of the Pleistocene epoch, we are transported back in time to witness an era long gone. Science Photo Library brings together artistry and scientific knowledge through this remarkable piece that highlights various aspects such as paleontology, evolution biology, wildlife preservation efforts while showcasing Earth's diverse fauna. Let us cherish this mesmerizing portrayal of mammoths - symbols of resilience from an age lost to time - reminding us to protect our planet's precious biodiversity
