The woolly mammoth diverged from the steppe mammoth
about 400,000 years ago in East Asia.
Its closest extant relative is the Asian elephant.
The mammoth was identified as an extinct species of elephant by Georges Cuvier in 1796.
The appearance of the woolly mammoth is probably the
best known of any prehistoric animal due to the many
frozen specimens with preserved soft tissue and depictions by contemporary humans in their art.
Fully grown males reached shoulder heights between 2.7 and 3.4 m (8.9 and 11.2 ft)
and weighed up to 6 tonnes (6.6 short tons).
