Massachusetts ROCKS! APES F Geology 120,000 years ago ice began to form at a rapid pace in northern Canada(Grette, www.biomass.umass.edu). This sheet quickly (on a geologic scale) swept down the eastern seaboard and engulfed the northeast down to present day Long Island, New York in a sheet of solid ice. This icesheet later in history became known as the Laurentide icesheet, named after the region in Canada in which it made its descent(Oldale, http://pubs.usgs.gov). Little did anything know b

Extinct Animals Research Woolly Mammoth
Extinct Animals Research: Woolly Mammoth We have learned much about the Woolly Mammoth almost more than any other dinosaur that has been identified. Due to the fact that the Woolly Mammoth so closely resembles today's elephants, care for them would most probably require most of the same factors to keep it alive. Since the Woolly Mammoth has been extinct for 4000 years, it is difficult to tell exactly what they lived on, but we can hypothesize. The Woolly Mammoth lived during the Ice Age, so if a
