definition: a very large extinct mammal closely related to elephants. Mammoths were much bigger than elephants, and had shaggy black fur and long tusks that curved upward. Several kinds of mammoths lived in the Northern Hemisphere until the end of the last Ice Age.
Mammoths were hunted by early humans, who may have caused mammoths to become extinct over ten thousand years ago.
