Mammoths - the giants from Russia

Experience prehistoric mammoths from Russia first hand at the Zoological Museum this autumn.

A mammoth family from Sevsk in Russia is now moving into the Zoological Museum to form the core of this year's major exhibition. The elephants of the past – the mammoths – have fascinated us for generations. A woolly giant with huge tusks that lived in a world of ice. 

The mammoths will be accompanied by the Caucasus rhinoceros, the cave bear, the steppe bison and other prehistoric animals that walked on Earth thousands of years ago. In addition to the large skeletons, the exhibition features Russian photographer Evgenia Arbugaeva's unique photos of the modern mammoth hunters in the impassable and rough wastelands of Siberia.
