What is mammoths adaptation?
Mammoths had too many adaptations to list. However, I can tell you about some of the adaptations they had to survive in cold climates. 1. Mammoths had a large mass, in most cases larger than modern elephants. The more mass an animal has, the less heat and energy it loses to keeping warm. 2. Small ears helped to conserve heat. 3. Thick fur and a layer of fat served as effective insulation to keep mammoths warm.
