+ - What Killed the Great Beasts of North America?->

sciencehabit writes: Until about 11,000 years ago, mammoths, giant beavers, and other massive mammals roamed North America.

The findings could have implications for conservation strategies, including controversial proposals for “rewilding” lions and elephants into North America.
