No, I don't know anywhere that serves wooly mammoths, either. and |Google is strangely reticent! (or reluctant!)

Don't repine, Luke - deep frozen meat never tastes as good as fresh, anyway.

I know they found one in Siberia a year or so ago, but
that's all I am aware. Guess I have to settle for
bunny, if I can find that. My dog chases one, but alas,
no luck in that endeavor either.

My cats bring one in, now and again - and them the blighters eat it before my very eyes! And then come to me to ask for tinned food, an hour later.
I'll never understand cats. sigh

Have you read "The Cat that Walked by Himself" from Kipling's "Just So Stories"?
It portrays the best representation of a cat's relationship with humankind that I know, with dignity and humour. Remarkable for a children's story!

... and to save you having to turn back a page, the current words are:-

DISCREPANT - DISGRACE


Oh, Dear! Once a teacher, always a teacher: here am I, bringing the class back to the curriculum after and interesting and fruitful diversion away from it!
blush
