Woolly mammoths are the ancestors of the present-day Asian elephants. The various species of mammoth were commonly equipped with long curved tusks and the northern species had a covering of long hair. They were also herbivores like the present day elephants, and lived on a diet of grasses and hedges. Adult woolly mammoths could effectively defend themselves from predators with their tusks, trunks and size, but the young and weakened adults were vulnerable to pack hunters such as wolves, cave hyenas and other large animals.
