Last Mammoth, The

Synopsis
Follows scientists’ quest for mammoth fossils in order to establish the reasons why the animal, an ancient relative of the elephant, finally became extinct. Fossil finds in the Siberian Arctic indicate that mammoths were still living as recently as 3500 years ago, while most prehistoric species perished at the end of the last Ice Age. Possibly human hunters or climate change drove them to Siberia.
