"It's Siberian Mammoth remains extracted for-"
—Dr. Wu before being cut off by Sammy(src)

The Woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) was a species of mammoth (an extinct elephant and relative of extant elephants), and along with the mastodon (another prehistoric elephant and elephant relative), were the largest land animals after the dinosaurs disappeared. Mammoths seemed to flourish in the ice age and were well adapted to the cold. They had long, shaggy fur coats and layers of fat to insulate them. They were plant eaters who became extinct less than 10,000 years ago. In fact, mammoths are found in near pristine condition in the far north frozen in the ice. Efforts are currently under way to clone a mammoth and if successful, it would mark the first time that an extinct prehistoric creature has been brought back to life.[1]

History[]

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous[]

The bones of a Woolly Mammoth appears on a tray being wheeled across the room. Sammy asks Dr. Wu what is on the tray during a tour of the Research Lab. His responds to her question by saying "It's Siberian mammoth remains extracted for-" before being cut off by Sammy. This could be a reference to the InGen facility Martel operating in Siberia, where, coincidentally, mammoth remains are found. In an interview with YouTuber Swerve, show runner Scott Cramer confirmed that the woolly mammoth was originally going to be in the show. As it would’ve been on Mantah Corp Island in the arctic biome but it was cut out of the season early in production.
