One of the Last Mammoths on Earth Was So Mutated, It Lost the Ability to Smell Flowers

quote [ The vast majority of woolly mammoths went extinct at the end of the last ice age, but small, isolated populations managed to hold out for a little while longer. New research uncovers the extent to which at least one of these final mammoths suffered due to its many mutations. ]

Yeah, well woolly mammoths existed for twice as long as humans have, and right now our long term prospects aren't looking so rosy.
