mammoth skeleton



The almost complete mammoth skeleton, an Ice Age relative of today's elephants, is our largest exhibit and has become the Museum's symbol. It was found near the stream Nevljica in the foothills of the Kamnik Alps Mts.. After examinations paleontologists concluded it was a male skeleton from approximatelly 20,000 years ago. It is worth noting that it is one of the most complete mammoth skeletons in Europe. Currently, individual bones are being preserved.
