7.5 - Dim-witted but sneaky. Never trust a mammoth!

A mammoth builder.

Mammoths are large, bulky, furry elephant-like creatures with tusks. Unlike most villains in the Astrosaurs series, they are not dinosaurs and do not appear to be carnivores, either. They work around The Jurassic Quadrant as builders, wreckers, and racers. Most mammoths are extremely dim and easy to trick, but are still very sneaky and most are evil. However, some seem to be reasonably intelligent. They have very short tempers as well. Some mammoths use special weapons like cement shooters and gravel grenades to suit their personalities and jobs. They also seem to enjoy drinking tea. The homeworld of all mammoths is Mammopolis. Like raptors and T. rexes, mammoths are prone to take over other planets, build on them, and move on once they've taken all of the space there.

Tonka the mammoth.

Various worlds owned by mammoths include Mammopolis and Morass Minor. They like racing very fast cars, and built the Mammoth Space-Car Races. Doctor Finkle the carnotaurus disguised himself as a mammoth doctor in Contest Carnage!, showing that at least a few may be friendly to the Vegetarian Sector. They do not seem to have firm alligances to either section of the Jurassic Quadrant.

Notable mammoths include Grandum, Tonka, and Marvin. Mammoths can have brown or gray fur. Mammoths have appeared in The Skies of Fear, The Planet of Peril, Revenge of the FANG, and a flock of tiny winged mammoths made by General Loki's dream meteor attacked the Sauropod crew in The Dreams of Dread.

long tusks that lived in Europe, North America, and Asia during the Ice Age, long after the extinction of the dinosaurs. They were herd animals with well-documented remains, including frozen specimens. Some are so well preserved that some scientists believe that woolly mammoths can be cloned and brought back to life. Early humans hunted woolly mammoths for food, and overhunting is a proposed cause for their extinction, along with climate change. They were distantly related to woolly rhinos.
