Mexican mammoths

At least 14 woolly skeletons of mammoths were discovered in Mexico in traps built by humans about 15,000 years ago.

Two pits in Tultepec north of Mexico City are the first mammoth traps to be discovered, officials say.

Ancient hunters may have driven elephant-sized mammals into traps using torches and branches.

The recent discovery of more than 800 mammoth bones could change our understanding of how ancient humans hunted huge animals.

The National Institute of Anthropology and History of Mexico (INAH) says more traps can be found in the area north of Mexico City. Archaeologists believed that ancient people killed mammoths only if the animals fell into a trap or were injured.

However, the discovery by INAH of traps created by man could mean that such hunts were planned.

The director of the institute said the discovery "represents a turning point in introducing the interactions of hunters with huge herbivores."
