Woolly mammoth

Next year for Halloween, BeBe (my scooter) and I are going to transform ourselves into a woolly mammoth! It's hard to believe that these extinct creatures were roaming North America as recently as 5,000 years ago. I have two mammoth specimens in my collection: a mammoth tooth and some mammoth hair. When I am asked if the hair is "real," I point out that it is fairly plentiful, since so many mammoths have been found intact in the permafrost, including a recent find in Siberia.
