Mammoth fauna of Russia

Russia Post released a set of triangular stamps on 17th February 2023 depicting the extinct animals like a cave bear and a woolly rhinoceros with cubs; and the common ones like an elk and a muskox.

The mammoth fauna is a complex of mammals, which was formed in late Pleistocene (about 10-100 thousand years ago) in the extratropical zone of Eurasia and North America and migrated depending on changes in the glacier boundaries to the north or to the south.
