Mammoth Mammoth

The woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) was a species of mammoth, the common name for the extinct elephant genus Mammuthus. The woolly mammoth was one of the last in a line of mammoth species, beginning with Mammuthus subplanifrons in the early Pliocene. M. primigenius diverged from the steppe mammoth, M. trogontherii, about 200,000 years ago in eastern Asia.

Rhinoceros Rhinoceros

The woolly rhinoceros (Coelodonta antiquitatis) is an extinct species of rhinoceros that was common throughout Europe and northern Asia during the Pleistocene epoch. The genus name Coelodonta means "cavity tooth". The woolly rhinoceros was a member of the Pleistocene megafauna.

Wisent and Aurochs Wisent and Aurochs

The aurochs (Bos primigenius), the ancestor of domestic cattle, is an extinct type of large wild cattle that inhabited Europe, Asia and North Africa. The Pleistocene aurochs was the largest species of bovines that ever lived, and in a slightly smaller form the species survived in Europe in the Holocene until the last recorded aurochs died in the Jaktorów Forest, Poland in 1627, but most examples found in the fossil record are from the Pleistocene era.

Irish Elk Irish Elk

The Irish elk (Megaloceros giganteus) was a species of Megaloceros and one of the largest deer that ever lived. Its range extended across Eurasia, from Ireland to northern Asia and Africa, but a related form is also recorded from China during the Late Pleistocene. The most recent remains of the species have been carbon-dated to about 7,700 years ago in Siberia. Although most skeletons have been found in Irish bogs, the animal was not exclusively Irish and was not closely related to either of the living species currently called elk. For this reason, the name "Giant Deer" is sometimes preferred.
