Product description

Habitat of the woolly rhinoceros

The Woolly Rhinoceros first appeared about 350,000 years ago and died out about 10,000 years ago. Fossil remains have been discovered in Europe and Asia. This molar is from the lower jaw and was found in Siberia. The habitat was similar to that of the woolly mammoth, but they never made the crossing over the Bering State to America.

Diet

The Woolly Rhinoceros was a herbivore that grazed on grass, small shrubs, lichens and mosses. He ground his food with his large molars. 30,000-year-old images found in caves in France suggest that the first humans hunted the woolly rhinoceros.

Length and weight

The Woolly Rhinoceros could reach a length of between 3 and 3.8 meters and weighed no less than 2 to 3 tons. They had 2 horns, the front of which could grow up to 1 meter in length. This enabled them to protect themselves against their enemies. The coat consisted of dense soft undercoats and long stiff covering hairs.
