Coelodonta antiquitatis

Coelodonta (C. antiquitatis `Plaque 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 and woolly fur, which allowed it to survive in cold climates, and is believed to have been brownish-gray in color with a central dark band.
Coelodonta's habitat stretched 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 inhabited tundras, grasslands, and boreal forests, where they fed on plants such as grasses, shrubs, and tree branches.
During the Pleistocene, the Earth's climate underwent 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, climatic changes and hunting by humans probably contributed to the extinction of this species at the end of the Pleistocene.
The Model Pose represents a specimen of Coelodonta walking across the cold plains of the northern continents during the Ice Age.
