Exquisite detail makes this an impressive addition to the Carnegie Collection.
The Woolly Mammoth bears a unique status in the world of prehistoric mammals. This is largely due to the incredible quality of many unearthed specimens, which have been preserved through freezing rather than fossilization. For this reason, a great deal is known about the anatomy and physiology of the mammoth when compared to other prehistoric species. Several prehistoric mammals could be found in the Carnegie Collection years ago, but they have long since been retired. This magnificent 20 centimeter sculpt of the Woolly Mammoth may herald the arrival of further prehistoric mammal releases in the future.
