Effects On The Ecosystem Of A Mammoth Extinction

The extinction of mammoths had to have a massive effect on the ecosystem. Without one animal it can lead to a huge problem. We make sure that animals don't go extinct because it can lead to an unbalanced ecosystem. Without mammoths some of its predators may go extinct because they don't have anything to feed on.

Mammoths would consume between 130 to 660 pounds a day! That is a lot so think about this, so when the mammoths went extinct their was a lot more of vegetation. We want to keep the ecosystem balanced with any little mess up we can make it unbalanced. So when the mammoths died out,then predators, then without predators to eat the other animals their would be too much of a population!

The Scale

This scale shows the Ausralovenator an this is a dinosaur that was very viscous. This scale shows measurements of the length, height, its feet, and its tail. So the key is 1 in=5 m and it explains the proportions. So you take the regular measurements and you divide it by 5 and you get your proportion.

The height in inches is 0.32 and in the feet in inches is 0.6. The length is 1 meter and the tail is 3 in. These are all the measurements. The Australovenator is very long and it is fast.
