Comments / pictures

Before Blumenbach described the Woolly Mammoth, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716) used an illustration of a mammoth molar, in his “Protogaea“ which he wrote 1698. This Molar was excavated in a village in Thiede, Salzgitter, in Nidersachsen-Thiede, and was kept in Göttingen Zoological Museum in Germany until the WoldWar II, when it was thought that the Molar was gone.

Only some years ago, both this Molar and also the Molar which Blumenbach used for his description of the Woolly Mammoth, were found again.
