The Woolly Mammoth
Extinct for roughly 10,000 years, the woolly mammoth once roamed the frigid flatlands of Canada. Related to modern day Asian elephants, the mammal was the size of an African elephant: it weighed more than six tons and grew to be anywhere from nine to 11 feet tall.
Protected by a thick undercoat and a long, shaggy outer layer of fur, the woolly mammoth was well adapted to frigid temperatures. The gigantic creature lived alongside early humans, who hunted them for meat and ivory. The animals died out due to temperature changes, loss of habitat and over-hunting by humans.
The Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology
A world renowned center of palaeontological research, the Royal Tyrrell Museum is home to more than 130,000 fossils. A popular Canadian tourist attraction, the museum is located in Alberta, where it is run by the province’s Ministry of Culture. It is nestled in the Late Cretaceous Horseshoe Canyon Formation and the museum maintains countless ancient specimens.
