Tiny mammoths lived on Crete

5 posts in this topic

Mammoths the size of a baby elephant once roamed the Greek island of Crete.

The smallest mammoth ever known to have existed roamed the island of Crete millions of years ago, researchers say. Adults were roughly the size of a modern baby elephant, standing over a metre tall at the shoulders. Remains were discovered more than a century ago, but scientists had debated whether the animal was a mammoth or an ancient elephant.

It would be nice if there was an DNA test to compare it to the SIberian mammoths

Isn't "tiny mammoth" a bit of an oxymoron?

Like jumbo shrimp?
