The exterior, skeletal morphology, and teeth of a 4- to 5-month-old woolly mammoth calf, Mammuthus primigenius Proboscidea, Elephantidae from the Khroma River (Yakutia, Russia) are described. [] Key Result A comparison of the dimensions of the head, body, and legs with the corresponding parameters of other M. primigenius calves of the same age shows the individual variability (10–15%) of these features.

Morphology, Individual Age, DNA and Sex of the Yuka Mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) from Northern Yakutia, Russia
A partial carcass of the woolly mammoth, Mammuthus primigenius, named “Yuka Mammoth,” was found thawed from the Pleistocene Yedoma (permafrost) deposits of the Oyogos Yar bluff on the coast of the
Parasitic diseases of woolly mammuth (Mammuthus primigenius Blumenbach, 1799)
The aim of this work was a making the review of cases of detection of parasites in mammoth more reliable, as it is not possible to reliably determine the species-specific endoparasite of woolly mammoth.
Nonpyrogenic charring of Late Pleistocene large mammal remains in northeastern Russia
Mammal remains preserved in the permafrost zone often bear traces of postmortem transformations, reflecting aspects of the palaeoenvironment and the processes that took place during the accumulation

The intestinal contents of a baby Woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius Blumenbach, 1799) from the Yuribey River (Yamal Peninsula)
Examination showed that the baby mammoth had no internal lesions and had a well developed subcutane ous fat, and a sample of the large intes tine contents was taken and comprehensively analysed to reconstruct the natural conditions exist ing during the lifespan of thebaby mammoth and determine the cause of its death.
Age criteria for the african elephant: loxodonta a. africana
Thirty age groups are described and illustrated, which are related to the progress of eruption and wear of the six teeth in each side of the lower jaw, which indicate an upper age limit of about 60 years, which is compatible with fuller information on Indian elephants.
The African elephant, Loxodonta africana : a field method for the estimation of age
A new field method, now termed the “FM technique”, for age estimation in wild African elephants was outlined in a previous paper, and its advantage over previous methods discussed.

Individual development, biology and evolution of the woolly mammoth
Today the woolly mammoth is one of the best-studied species of extinct mammals and complex studies and new methods that had previously been applied to modern mammals only, have laid the ground for several new directions of research into the problems of the biology of the mammoth.
Dental identification and age determination in Elephas maximus
An appreciation for dental variability in Elephas maximus will demand a re-evaluastion of frequently-cited examples of macroevolutionary patterns within the Elephantidae.
Observations on growth and molar change in the African elephant
Summary Observations were made on the growth of five African elephants in the Basel Zoological Gardens. Data on circus elephants of the same age were also collected. Growth in height decreases at
