Most mammoths become extinct at the end of the last Ice Age, around 10,000 years ago, and this tooth from a full-sized male was discovered in Sandy Heath Quarry in 2003. Mammoths had an incredible 5 to 6 sets of teeth during their life time! As the old sets wore down, the new sets would come through to replace them – just like in humans!
