Mammoths and mastodons were so abundant that their teeth are the most commonly found fossil mammalian remains in the State. Although the Pleistocene is generally termed the Ice Age, the ice cap did not reach as far south as Florida and the woolly mammoth was never a resident of the peninsula. The remains of the Imperial and Columbian mammoths are among the most common fossil finds in Florida.
