This may be slightly off-topic, but when looking outside the train window this morning on a ride in central Spain, I thought I saw a mammoth some distance away. I was so flabbergasted that by the time I was groping for my camera the view was already gone.
Subsequent research in the internet revealed that it was not a mammoth, but just an elephas antiquus or palaeoloxodon
, and nothing more.
It appears to be a life-sized statue on the site of an excavation in Soria province, Spain. Google streetview has captured it from somewhat closer by than from the train, so here's an idea of what I saw this morning: streetview
