This mammoth skeleton took years to extract from the permafrost of eastern Siberia. It is from an adult male Mammuthus primigenius. It stands 10 feet high, 5 feet wide, and is 17 feet in length. The tusks alone weigh 132 pounds! The Skeleton is ~95% complete with over 50% of the bones coming from the same individual. When a bone was missing, a similar sized bone was obtained from the fossil remains of another mammoth
