The Columbian Mammoth had a height of 14ft (4.3M) and weighed as much as 8 to 10 tons. It was one of the largest prehistoric mammals. It also, had the longest tusks of the ancient elephants, with some measuring over 14ft (5M) in length.
This primitive elephant ranged all over North America and Florida. It and the Imperial Mammoth were the two Mammoths found in Prehistoric Florida.
This Ice Age Elephant had flat teeth with ridges that were designed for grazing on plants and grasses in the grasslands and open savannas. They are closely related to the Asian or Indian Elephant. A dwarf Mammoth may have died as recent as 4 - 3.5 Thousand Years ago on Russia’s Wrangel Island.
