Synopsis

Over a million years old, the Durfort mammoth is the emblem of the National Museum of Natural History.

Fragilized by the passage of time, this giant skeleton now needs urgent care. The bones have turned black, and some have worrying cracks. Paleontologists are working on this complex and lengthy restoration project.

This film looks at the history of this pachyderm with surprising characteristics using scientific methods.
