Hayes

Hayes was a very nice guy

His favorite food was grass

He was very furry

He was killed because of the ice age

His tusks were 15 feet

He died 120,000-200,000 years ago

The Mammuthus primigenius also known as the woolly mammoth lived during 1700 B.C. in the pleistocene epoch. Hayes lived in the arctic tundra, Eurasia, North America, and Northern Africa. The woolly mammoth loved grass. He died around 120,000-20,000 years ago. He died because the ice age, which is a time where everything got cold and there was glaciation. Even though Hayes had his warm wool and 2-inch layer of insulating fat he still froze.
Some woolly mammoth migrating
Hayes was also hunted by the Homo sapiens. They wanted him for his fur so they could stay warm. They would throw spears and axes at him. Hayes had very long tusks, up to 15 feet. He traveled in a herd of other woolly mammoth. Many herds migrated to other places. He also has many other relatives, one is still alive, the elephant. He would spend 16-18 hours eating his grass.
Scientists have recently found a mummified woolly mammoth. They think they can clone it and create more woolly mammoth. She was found on the Yamal Peninsula, Russia, in 2007 on a frozen over river. It is at the Natural History Museum in London.

Hayes will be forever missed in our hearts
