A cooling (Little Ice Age?) took place. restoration of ecosystems similar to the Pleistocene mammoth steppe. Skeleton densities in the permafrost show that the mammoth steppe was a highly productive ecosystem similar to African savannas. Biomass of animals in the north of Siberia was ~10 t/km2. Herbivores enhanced biocyclicity, trampled moss and shrubs and maintained by:

Fresh Mammoth Carcass from Siberia Holds Many Secrets. Scientists will examine the mammoth to learn whether it will yield enough undamaged.

A mammoth is any of a number of an extinct genus of elephant, often with long curved tusks and, in northern species, a covering of long hair. They lived during the Pleistocene epoch from Hair. The mammoth’s hairy coat no more implies an Arctic adaptation than a woolly coat does for a sheep.

Mammoths lacked erector muscles that fluff up an animal’s fur and create insulating air pockets. Neuville, who conducted the most detailed study of mammoth skin and hair, wrote: “It appears to me impossible to find, in the anatomical examination of the skin and pelage [hair], any.

It fed on low tundra vegetation in which it scraped away snow and ice from with its ivory tusks.
