Scientists have found out the cause of the death of mammoths

An international group of scientists from Finland, Great Britain, and Spain called climate change the cause of the death of mammoths and mastodons. The study is published in the scientific journal Nature Ecology & Evolution.

According to scientists, the version that primitive people exterminated mammoths is wrong. Experts have found that mastodons and mammoths became extinct at the end of the last ice age, followed by a gradual global decline in the elephant population. The catastrophe that caused the complete extinction of these animals lasted for millions of years.

The researchers analyzed all the available exhibits of mastodons and mammoths in world museums. “We did not foresee such a result. It seems that the broad global picture of the extinction of proboscis in recent geological history can be reproduced without taking into account the impact of early human diasporas,” researcher at the School of Earth Sciences at the University of Bristol, Dr. Zhang Hanweng, said.
