Paleontologists are still discovering mammoth bones today, and they are trying to figure out exactly where the mammoths lived and how they died. This is not an easy task, but scientists and paleontologists will keep working until they figure out all of the information that they need. They might never figure out all of the information, but they sure will know a lot. There is still much more to find, discover, and learn about mammoths, and also people waiting to discover it.
Woolly Mammoths lived in the part of the world that was filled with ice and water. During the Ice Age, Texas was really hot, so there was no need for the mammoths in Texas to have fur.

Many animal species become extinct over time. But this is not a good thing. This change causes harmful changes to the environment. An example of an animal species that has gone extinct is, mammoths. Mammoths roamed the Earth more than 11,000 years ago. Scientists believe that the cause of their extinction was, flooding and mudslides. Extinction is harmful to the environment because, animals eat certain types of animals, and when that animal becomes extinct, there will be no animal to eat those animals.
Mammoths ate animals that were smaller than them. But when mammoths became extinct, there was no animal to eat those animals. Over time, that animal species started reproducing more and more, until there were many types of the same animal.
Overproduction occurs when there are too many animals for the environment to support. When an animal becomes extinct, the animals that they used to eat are now going through overproduction. This is very harmful to the environment because, there aren't any resources to support these animals. This animal species will eventually die out. Many animal species become extinct more and more, and eventually the environment will be completely changed.
Reaction Based on Religion
In the Bible, it states that animals and people were created on the same day. But scientists say that there are animals that many years old, that existed before people. But this whole dilemma hasn't been solved. There are many different theories that people may come up with, but every time you thin you have figured something out, you create another problem that needs to be solved. It is a very difficult task, and it takes determination, focus, and knowledge to be able to figure it out. Many other creation stories state that people and animals were made on the same day, or that people were made before animals, but science seems to be seen differently.
