What’s the chances human ever tamed or even trained any them?


dwarf mammoths, not very mammoth


You can read details about it. They died out on island becouse they were inbred.


There’s a Clive cussler book where some smallish ones are still alive


were they not pygmy mammoths and not proper wolly mammoths? i remember reading about this when the fact that they were contemporaries with ancient egyptians
