A pair of Mammuthus exilis or dwarf mammoth or pygmy mammoths,have came to waterhole to escape the hot summer day.
The pygmy mammoth or Channel Islands mammoth (Mammuthus exilis) is an extinct species of dwarf elephant descended from the Columbian mammoth (M. columbi) of mainland North America. This species went extinct during the Quaternary extinction event in which many megafauna species went extinct due to changing conditions to which the species could not adapt. A case of island or insular dwarfism, from a recent analysis in 2010 it was determined that M. exilis was on average, 1.72 m (5.6 ft) tall at the shoulders and 760 kg (1,680 lb) in weight. A stark contrast to its 4.3 m (14 ft) tall, 9,100 kg (20,100 lb) ancestor.(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pygmy_ma…
