The Woolly Mammoths extinction

Breaking Headline News

The Woolly Mammoth were herbivores. They mainly ate grass, but also shrubs, and mosses. A single mammoth could eat about 600 pounds of grass a day. That is one of the reasons that the mammoths disappeared, because there wasn't enough vegetation for them anymore. The grass and other plants did grow back, only after their extinction.

Another reason to why the mammoths die was of global warming. Mammoths were only suppose to adapt to the cold. Since there was a huge climate change, mammoths were getting to hot. After the mammoths died, humans had to hunt elsewhere. Humans had been hunting mammoths or their fur, meat and ivory up to the point of the mammoth extinction.
