Woolly Mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius)

I seem to be on an urban wildlife theme lately so I might as well include this Victoria resident whom I visited with today. Don't miss the chance to say hello to him this week - it's Admission by Donation Week at the Royal BC Museum. I spent the whole afternoon there - my first visit in about 30 years. I expect I'll be going back soon. It's full of fascinating things and well worth the price of admission.

We don't have these in Minnesota! But then, you have polar bears and reindeer running around in the streets in Canada, too, eh?

Great image, Benjamin! I'll bet his dental hygienist shudders when Woolly walks into the office -:)

I think I was about 11 when I first saw Woolly - 30 plus years ago! - and he still fills me with awe! I love that thing and have always thought he's looking direct at *me*! haha... which your photo captures perfectly!
