#WoollyMammoth An enormous #mammal, believed to be closely related to the modern-day #elephant was over 4 metres tall and over 6 tons. They disappeared 10,000 years ago through a combination of hunting by humans and the disappearance of its habitat through climate change. The last of the isolated woolly mammoth populations is believed to have vanished from Wrangel Island in the Arctic Ocean around 1700BC.

Pictured here is an endangered sea otter. Once a common species, these little marine fur balls were hunted for its super soft fur which reduced its global population to less than 20000. In 1930s the population in California coast was reduced to mere 50 individuals. Since then due to the protection by law, their population has increased to around 2500.
Unlike other marine mammals, these have the thick fur through out the year. The pups have even more thicker and super super soft fur. This helps them keep warm and dry. Thick fur also helps them float easily as they don't have the fatty blubber. The pups are pure joy to watch. They are literally a stuffed animal. One can watch them all day long in spite of the piercing sun and chilling wind.
