Mammoths were a species of proboscidean mammal native to Earth in humanity's prehistory. They evolved from elephants which migrated from Africa to the north and adapted to Europe, Northern Asia including Russia, and North America in the Ice Age.
Human prehistory Edit
Nimrod's Neanderthal tribe herded mammoths "sunward to find new grazing." (TV: Ghost Light) According to the Fourth Doctor, the Neanderthals could knock up a good Mammoth casserole. (PROSE: The Romance of Crime)
While being pursued by the Trods through time, the Second Doctor visited prehistoric Earth, where he used his recorder to befriend a herd of mammoths and get them to destroy the Trods' power supply. (COMIC: Pursued by the Trods)
Circa 35,000 years ago, the Eleventh Doctor and Rory Williams visit the future site of Los Angeles, California, where the TARDIS becomes stuck in a tar pit. A mammoth was also stuck in the tar pit with them. (COMIC: The Doctor and the Nurse)
Modern times Edit
There were rumours that King George III of the United Kingdom received the last mammoth in Europe as a gift from Catherine II of Russia. In 1782, during a night of drinking with the Eighth Doctor, Scarlette claimed that she had once ridden George III's mammoth. As late as 1804, Thomas Jefferson believed that woolly mammoths still roamed the North American midwest and even sent an expedition to find one. (PROSE: The Adventuress of Henrietta Street)
K9 once encountered some mammoths on an unnamed planet in another dimension, partially inhabited by ex-Tellac miners. They lived alongside other Earth animals from widely varying periods of evolutionary history. On this planet, he observed one fighting a sabre-toothed tiger. (PROSE: K9 and the Missing Planet)
Also in that year, the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond encountered a mammoth in New York City, although it was eventually revealed to be an alien spaceship disguised as a mammoth. (PROSE: The Forgotten Army)
Alternate timelines Edit
In another alternate timeline, an American news anchor told her audience that the Holy Roman Emperor Winston Churchill had a "personal mammoth", and that he returned to the Buckingham Senate atop it. (TV: The Wedding of River Song)
Other planets Edit
A zoo on an Earth-like planet exhibited a mammoth or a mammoth-like creature. (COMIC: The Didus Expedition) The Junlangis of Dellah were white, mammoth-like creatures. (PROSE: Twilight of the Gods) Yahoomer's species resembled orange mammoths with four trunks. (PROSE: The Monsters Inside) Due to a fracture in time caused by the Time War, mammoths on Traxis coexisted with dinosaurs, neanderthals and robots. (COMIC: Weapons of Past Destruction)
