Many ice-age experts now do believe: The woolly mammoth has lived during the height of the Last Ice Age near the rim of the continental ice-sheets in a severe arctic climate. It was so cold up there that not even trees were able to grow. Near these glaciers, the woolly mammoth was grazing on the periglacial steppe, loess-steppe, mammoth steppe or steppe-tundra. This steppe-tundra was growing enough fodder, they say, so that large herds of these elephants were able to live there. During the long arctic winter, the grasses contained much protein, because the first frost in autumn preserved it in the plants. The mammoth was able to live in the Far North, just like the reindeer and the muskox of today. - Is that true? Is that scientific?

In what kind of a climate has this steppe tundra or mammoth steppe grown? Where is it growing now? What kind of a plant-cover did it have? How much fodder is growing now on the arctic tundra, azonal dry steppe, and forest tundra per year? How much crude protein does the arctic or subarctic periglacial steppe-tundra contain in winter? How much fodder must grow at least in this periglacial steppe-tundra, so that the elephant is still able to live there? How much crude protein does the elephant need at least in winter for maintenance and growth? Where is this mammoth steppe growing now?
