Abstract

Miller discusses his identification of the "elephants" of the Book of Ether with the Columbian mammoth. Mammoths are generally thought to have been extinct by this period, but the exact date is still a matter of debate. The fact that they were mentioned solely in the Jaredite context, but not by the Nephites, indicates they likely became extinct at some point between these two civilizations.
