The above map represents a time in Europe's history where you could travel over land from the continent of Europe to Britain and Ireland
And the animals below roamed over these lands with white European Ice Age hunters, there were no nations as we know today, no country called Ireland, Brittan, Germany, Russia, Spain, yet there were nations, tribal nations. These are groups of people who came together who controlled, protect their members of the community and hunting areas from other tribes. This would have occurred from the first people that moved into Europe
The Animals below are the Animals they hunted and some of these animals, Bears, Lions hunted some of these human hunters. We must remember that wolves lived during this period would have most likely hunted man when given the opportunity, but over the centuries we wiped out these particular wolves and the ones that walk among us today are the timid ones.
Many Europeans (Whites) know very little about the animals their ancient ancestors hunted and the following images can help in remedying this.There were a diverse number of animals that European Caucasians hunted throughout the Ice Age including Bison, Wild Horses, Cave Lions, Cave Bears, Wolves, Wild Cattle, Red Deer, Roe Deer, Fallow Deer, Beaver and Mammoth Elephants.
The animals of Europe are very similar to, or the same as animals found in North America. Europe also has Beaver, Lynx, as well as a number of deer including Reindeer, Elk (known as a Moose in USA and Canada), Black and Brown Bears, White Swans, Hares and Rabbits, Wolverines, Stout and Weasels.
Europe's animals have had some irreversible extinctions including the Cave Bear, Woolly Mammoth, Woolly Rhinoceros and Giant Deer. Scientists have spent considerable time on re-wilding initiatives in Europe with plans to reinvigorate the megafauna populations. They have successfully reintroduced European Bison (pictured right). In the Ice Age bison lived on open tundra, today they live in forest areas and during the First World War the numbers were decimated and only through careful and selective breeding have their numbers risen to roughly 3,000 today.
They have also successfully brought back the Musk Oxen into Scandinavian regions. The Brown bear (pictured left), are found in North America, and Europe.
Hairy Rhino (pictured right) ,unfortunately the Woolly Rhino is now extinct, its skeletons are found occasionally.
The Permafrost of Siberia in Russia Hides the Mummified Remains of Ice Age Animals.
The thick permafrost in Russian Siberia hides the mummified remains of ice age animals. In some cases, entire buried carcasses that have been shrunken and desiccated down to a natural mummified state have been dug up. Here are 10 such frozen mummies that tell us how these animals lived and looked during the Ice Age.
"Did you ever wake up from a long nap feeling a little disoriented, not quite knowing where you were? Now, imagine getting a wake-up call after being "asleep" for 42,000 years."
"The cave bear (Ursus spelaeus) was a species of bear that lived in Europe and Asia during the Pleistocene and became extinct about 24,000 years ago during the Last Glacial Maximum. Both the word "cave" and the scientific name spelaeus are used because fossils of this species were mostly found in caves. The cave bear's range stretched across Europe; from Spain and Great Britain in the west, Italy, parts of Germany, Poland, the Balkans, Romania and parts of Russia, including the Caucasus; and northern Iran."
"Between the years 1917 and 1923, the Drachenloch cave in Switzerland was excavated by Emil Bächler. The excavation uncovered more than 30,000 cave bear skeletons. The unusual finding in a deep chamber of Basua Cave in Savona, Italy, is thought to be related to cave bear worship by Neanderthals, as there is a vaguely zoomorphic stalagmite surrounded by clay pellets."
Picture on the right showing wild Cattle and horses was paintedover 15,000 years ago by Ice Age Europeans, and this cave complex can be found in Southwest France and contains some of the most remarkable Palaeolithic cave paintings in the world.
"When modern humans first wandered into Europe some 50,000 years ago, this snaggle-toothed cat was there to greet them.
Painstaking genetic analysis of a jawbone dredged up from the bottom of the North Sea has now confirmed the theory that the so-called scimitar cat Homotherium latidens lived in Europe much longer than previously believed.
Until recently, the earliest fossil of a Homotherium in the region dated to about 300,000 years ago, and many paleontologists had assumed that’s when the large cat went locally extinct."
An analysis of the microscopic wear on the teeth of the legendary “man-eating lions of Tsavo” reveals that it wasn’t desperation that drove them to terrorize a railroad camp in Kenya more than a century ago.
It's been proven in recent years that after testing the skulls that they didn't kill anywhere near 135 people. One lion killed roughly 40 people and the other about half of that. Both of the lions' had missing canines so they couldn't hunt their usual prey. The cave from the movie was a burial site, not a den where the lions lived and ate. Their skulls and hides are in the Fields Museum in Chicago. Great movie but a lot of liberties were taken to make it seem much worse than the truth.
The severed head of a wolf that died about 40,000 years ago has been found in Siberia perfectly preserved in the Siberian permafrost.

Russian scientists have found the furry head of an Ice Age wolf perfectly preserved in the Siberian permafrost.
The head, which died 40,000 years ago, was discovered in the Russian Arctic region of Yakutia.
Valery Plotnikov, a top researcher at the local branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, said the animal belonged to an ancient subspecies of wolf that lived at the same time as the mammoths and became extinct alongside them.
Scientists said it was an adult, about 25 per cent bigger than today's wolves, but did not say whether it was male or female.
Mr Plotnikov called the discovery unique because scientists previously only had found wolf skulls without tissues or fur, while this head has ears, a tongue and a perfectly preserved brain. END
Wolves in Chernobyl Dead Zone Wolves and other wildlife are living in the 30km 'dead zone,' which still surrounds the remains of the reactor in the city of Chernobyl near Belarus. This video shows bison, wild horses, beavers, bears, lynx and wolves that were hunted by Europeans many centuries ago
Brown bear hunting Bear hunting has long traditions in Scandinavia. It is a very thrilling hunt, but maybe not suitable for anyone. You've got to have guts!
Brown bear hunting and the Sami traditions and mythology "Listen to your ancestors. Listen to tales from an age gone by - a long, long time ago as the legend goes there was a time when animals could talk when they behaved like us. There was a time when even the plants and the stones had a voice, a time when plants and animals were our brothers and sisters. There was a time when we worshiped the bear... a creature that has always lived side by side with us"
" David Attenborough is in the Swiss Jura Mountains to discover the secrets of a giant. Beneath his feet lies a vast network of tunnels and chambers, home to a huge empire of ants. It is believed to be one of the largest animal societies in the world, where over a billion ants from rival colonies live in peace. Their harmonious existence breaks many of the rules for both ants and evolution, and raises some important questions."
"In Bohemia, at the very heart of Europe, south of the Golden City of Prague and guarded by medieval castles, lies a hidden mosaic of lakes and gently flowing rivers, of misty forests and mysterious peat bogs."
This important wetland, shaped both by nature and man, is a magnet for plant, animal life and blue frogs and carp fist are caught for eating.
"The wide, often untouched wilderness of the Baltic hinterland is home to many animals. More than 350 brown bears live in the primeval forests of Alutaguse. In the spring, the Soomaa National Park transforms into a huge lake. Europe's widest waterfall is located in Latvia. In the beginning of May, vimba bream follow the course of the River Venta. More than 1000 wolves go on the hunt in Latvia's forests"
"Gentle, green meadows, rugged rock faces, mysterious lakes, dense forests, tall mountains, low-lying river deltas, quietly meandering mountain streams and smack dab in the middle, a unique fauna - Switzerland is an alpine country, with rare, selected animal species and present their behavioural patterns, such as the Swiss or Arven jay, the lynx and albino catfish."
