Scientists have mapped part of the genome of the woolly mammoth, a huge mammal that's been extinct for about 10,000 years. The breakthrough could lead to recreating the creatures.
The woolly mammoth stood 12-feet tall and weighed seven tons. It had a shaggy, dark brown coat, a big head, small ears, small tail, and long, curved tusks. Females were slightly smaller. Both sexes had a hump at the top of their backs, which were actually mounds of hair and fat.
