Meet the giant creatures – sabre-toothed cats, giant sloths, cave bears, dire wolves and mammoths – living in the frozen landscapes of our planet ten thousand years before modern civilization.
Dazzling computer-generated imagery brings this mysterious era to life, revealing an ancient world of ice, the dawn of our ancestors, and a time when humans fought for survival alongside majestic woolly beasts.
Roam with baby Lyuba, a 40,000 year old female woolly mammoth calf recently exposed by the melting Siberian permafrost, now one of the best preserved mammoth mummies in the world. Discover the story of Zed, one of the most complete Colombian mammoth skeletons ever uncovered, extracted in 2008 from under a Los Angeles car park.
See the bigger-picture perspective on the relationship between climate, the Earth, its resources and inhabitants and consider the possible fates of today’s living mammals.
