"Mammoths can't go extinct. They're the biggest things on Earth."
Manny on mammoths[src]

Mammoths were large, trunked, tusked mammals that lived during the ice ages.

Traits

Large, four-legged, woolly mammals, mammoths usually lived and moved in herds, though some exceptions, such as Manny, who journeyed alone, existed. With small, flappy ears, short tails and hulking size, mammoths had few predators besides humans. Mammoths relied on their large size and strength to keep themselves safe from predators or other threats, keeping an eye out for danger when in herds. Being herbivores, mammoths ate large amounts of vegetation and fruit, which they often found by using their tusks to part ice and snow in the pursuit of these foods.

Mammoths also used their trunks as a fifth limb in reaching food, comforting loved ones, grasping and in fights against predators. Making great use of their trunks, a traditional sign of mammoth affection was for two mammoths to lock trunks. [1] Mammoth parents shared care responsibilities over their young, which they watched over at all times, allowing them some free reign upon their teenage years.

Difference between female and male mammoths trunks

They're are also distinct characteristics that establish the difference between female and male mammoths of the ice age series, such as size of males are much larger than females, also notably the female mammoths have smaller thinner tusk and tufts of hair on the top of their heads are different, notice that all female mammoth's trunks end goes outwards and male mammoths trunks go towards them, this is shown in the following image:

History

Mammoths were among the herds of animals that left their homes in the north to flee the ice ages, moving in herds. At some point, mammoths were thought by many animals to be extinct, as none had seen that many for some time, though it became clear that the mammoths were still alive, as they traversed past a number of surprised animals in a massive herd. With time, mammoths remained as numerous as they had been before.
