Recovered mammoth bones, Wrangel Island
The Natural History Museum Scotland has a photo album from Wrangel Island, off the coast of Siberia. This includes "archaeological recovered mammoth bones and teeth", presumably teeth, tusks and few bones gathered some time ago. Pgymy Elephants includes a look at the mammoths of Wrangel Island, which seem to have died out after all the mammoths on the mainland had gone, and which also seem to have shrunk in size over the generations.
