More on 'Mammoth' carving

This page at the 24 Hour Museum has a photo and diagram of the newly-found carving.

(You can call me a cynic, but when you think "mammoth", what features come to mind? Fur. Tusks. And oh yes, a big long trunk.
Check out the diagram on this page. "The back and head of a mammoth complete with two tusks and an eye." No trunk. Or alternatively, two trunks.
It is exciting stuff but is it reeeaaally a mammoth?)

I am also skeptical of this. Judging by the evidence, at least as posted so far secularly, this has not convinced me yet. Posted by Cwrw

And yet it has that same 'Oh yes...' quality that the carvings up at Cresswell Crags have. That is, when someone points out what its supposed to be, you go 'Oh yes...'.

I believe them, if only so we have visitable mesolithic carvings in the SW!
