Mammoths on Other Islands Around the World

The evolution of the massive mammoths down to the pygmy mammoths is not an occurrence unique to the Channel Islands. Remarkably, the same process took place around the world on other islands where the mammoths found themselves separated from the mainland - presumably protected from mainland predators, and having to adapt to a new food source. Take a look at a world map and see where the pygmy mammoths have been found :

Malta and Sicily, southwest of Italy

The Island of Ceylon, near India

Wrangle Island, north of Siberia

Santa Rosa and San Miguel Island
