17 Jul Columbian! NOT WOOLY
Columbian mammoths (Mammuthus columbi) were a magnificent species of mammoth that roamed North America during the Pleistocene epoch. While they shared a distant relationship with the well-known Woolly mammoths (yes, just like Manny from the timeless ‘Ice Age’ movies), Columbian mammoths stood tall, surpassing Wooly’s in size. Towering over 14 feet in height and weighing an astounding estimated 20,000 pounds, these colossal creatures captivate our imaginations with their sheer magnitude.
