Woolly Mammoth coloring page by artist, Stacey Mayer, C. 2015The Puget Sound basin has a rich history of diverse prehistoric animals, preserved by a local fossil record. Before glaciers disappeared, and our deep gullies filled with sea water, (Puget Sound,) there were giant Wolly Mammoths, Short-faced Bears, and our own versions of today's speedy cat, the cheetah.

 

Here's one of my favorites; the Wolly Mammoth. Several large fossilized Mammoth tusks have been discovered around the Pacific Northwest, found by Washington State residents during farming activites, and one was even found by a building crew! 

Washington State used to be home to thousands of Woolly Mammoths. Here's a big Woolly Mammoth for you to print and color.
