Skeleton

 A woolly mammoth skeleton is displayed at Summers Place Auctions on November 26, 2014 in Billingshurst, England. The ice age mammoth skeleton, complete with tusks, fetched  189,000 to a telephone bidder. The woolly mammoth died out about 10,000 years ago. Errol Fuller, the curator of the sale, said: 'This is a virtually complete Mammoth skeleton with beautiful tusks, which makes it particularly rare. Its impressive size of 3.5 metres  (11'6) height and 5.5 metres (18') long, suggests it may be a male Mammoth and may have weighed up to six tonnes in its lifetime'.
