One resident of Broken Mammoth, the Dall sheep,
is well known today. Unlike the mammoth and the
elk, the Dall sheep managed to survive the climate
changes and continues to live in the uplands.
A Survivor, Unchanged
Another inhabitant well known today is the
snowshoe hare. For the hare, life has changed
very little over the millennia. As always, the
snowshoe hare would have had to watch out for
predators such as lynx and Arctic fox.
