MAMMOTHS: ICE AGE GIANTS

By Adrian Lister

(Second hand copy in unused condition)
(signed by the author with a dedication to the former owner)


Enormous, elephantine and extinct: the mammoth is the iconic animal of the Ice Age. These colossal creatures roamed the cold, open landscapes of Europe, Asia, and North America as recently as 20,000 years ago. Today, their well-preserved fossil remains generate much fascination and speculation around the world.

Mammoths: Ice Age Giants reveals what their life was really like. It describes their environment, behaviour, evolution and appearance, including new DNA analysis that shows what colour mammoths actually were.

Unravelling the latest scientific research, Adrian Lister explains why this incredible species died out and whether it may be possible to clone them in the future. He also draws challenging parallels between the fate of the mammoths and that of their close relatives, the living elephants.
