Coelodonta antiquitatis
Coelodonta (C. antiquitatis "Plate mammal"), commonly known as the woolly rhinoceros, was a species of extinct rhinoceros that lived during the Pleistocene, between 2.6 million and 11,700 years ago.

This rhinoceros was characterized by its thick, woolly fur, which allowed it to survive in cold climates and is believed to be brownish gray with a central dark band.

Coelodonta's habitat extended across much of the Northern Hemisphere, from Europe to Asia and North America.
Fossil remains of this species have been found in Siberia, Mongolia, China, Kazakhstan and parts of Europe, including France, Germany and Spain.

These rhinos are believed to have lived in tundras, grasslands and boreal forests, where they fed on plants such as grasses, bushes and tree branches.
During the Pleistocene, Earth's climate experienced several cycles of cooling and warming, leading to changes in the habitat of Coelodonta and other species. As the tundras expanded and contracted, Coelodonta may have migrated to different regions in search of food and shelter. However, climate changes and hunting by humans likely contributed to the extinction of this species at the end of the Pleistocene.
