See Massive Mammoths at the Ontario Science Centre

MIDTOWN TORONTO’S INTERACTIVE, EDUCATIONAL ATTRACTION FEATURES SOME OF THE LARGEST MAMMALS TO EVER ROAM THE EARTH

Ontario-Science-Centre-Mammoth-Mastodon

JANUARY 22 TO APRIL 25  The Ontario Science Centre transports visitors back nearly two million years, to a time when colossal mammals like dire wolves, woolly mammoths, and saber-toothed cats roamed the earth. Mammoths and Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age, an interactive exhibit from Chicago’s Field Museum, explores the Pleistocene epoch with skeletons, casts, teeth and tusks of short-faced bears and camels, as well as the well-preserved baby Lyuba, a female woolly mammoth calf. See displays of Paleolithic cave art, ivory figurines, and compare your weight against the daily consumption of a Columbian mammoth. Learn about the evolution and extinction of these animals, and how their living cousins, elephants, help scientists to understand their existence.  —Linda Luong Luck
