EOL Features Mammals from the Pleistocene Epoch
EOL has created educational species pages on the mammoth (Mammuthus), mastodon (Mammut americanum), giant short-faced bear (Arctodus simus), and two types of giant ground sloths (Megatherium americanum and Mylodontidae).
In these pages you can find student friendly information on the biology and ecology of these species and unique fossil photos from the collections of The Field Museum, Chicago, IL, USA.
