Mammoths were a species native to Earth in prehistory.

Prehistory Edit

In the pre-universe before the Time Lords created history, there existed cities carved into gigantic ivory tusks where scholars and philosophers rode on the backs of steam-powered mammoth skeletons. (PROSE: Christmas on a Rational Planet) The mammoths ruled these cities and were in turn ruled by Cernunnos. The mammoths created stone men and then used breeding-engines to create humanity.

After the creation of the Spiral Politic, Cernunnos ordered the humans to hunt mammoths to extinction. A trace of loyalty to mammoths remained in humanity's collective memory for billions of years. The ruins of one of the mammoths' ivory cities stayed hidden in an alter-time realm. (PROSE: Cobweb and Ivory)

Around 100,000 BC, Martha Jones watched herds of mammoths while the Tenth Doctor went to retrieve the bodies of Modrikanians who had died in a crash on Earth. (PROSE: Snowglobe 7)

Nimrod's Neanderthal tribe herded mammoths "sunward to find new grazing." (TV: Ghost Light) According to the Fourth Doctor, the Neanderthals could knock up a good Mammoth casserole. (PROSE: The Romance of Crime)

While being pursued by the Trods through time, the Second Doctor visited prehistoric Earth, where he used his recorder to befriend a herd of mammoths and get them to destroy the Trods' power supply. (COMIC: Pursued by the Trods)

After being flung back in time by a Time Cube, the Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith and Dr. Bhoul encountered a caveman and a raging mammoth. (PROSE: The Time Snatch)

Circa 35,000 years ago, the Eleventh Doctor and Rory Williams visited the future site of Los Angeles, California, where the TARDIS became stuck in a tar pit. A mammoth was also stuck in the tar pit with them. (COMIC: The Doctor and the Nurse)

There was a picture of a mammoth in Malohkeh's database. (TV: Cold Blood)

(PROSE: The Adventuress of Henrietta Street, Cobweb and Ivory, Grass, COMIC: Political Animals) As late as 1804, Thomas Jefferson believed that woolly mammoths still roamed the North American midwest and even sent an expedition to find one. An woman named Lucia Cailloux killed all the North American mammoths to prevent him from finding them. (PROSE: Grass, The Adventuress of Henrietta Street)

In the posthuman era, Cernunnos was resurrected at Terra Primagenia. Returning to the remains of the pre-universe mammoth empire with the unwitting help of Avus, Cernunnos began planning to undo the anchoring of the thread in a War against the Great Houses. (PROSE: Cobweb and Ivory)

Alternate timelines Edit

In an alternate timeline, the Silurians brought back the mammoths, raising them for food and allowing them to roam the mountains of Earth. (PROSE: Blood Heat)

In another alternate timeline, an American news anchor told her audience that the Holy Roman Emperor Winston Churchill had a "personal mammoth", and that he returned to the Buckingham Senate atop it. (TV: The Wedding of River Song)
