Beautiful! The posture, with the head looking back, is rather original.

The Carnegie mammoth has its two right limbs swinging forward at the same time, a very unnatural way for most animals to move. To be honest, I just noticed that they are all moving unnaturally; the Carnegie just has a much more obvious swing.
They obviously made them that way so the toys would be better balanced! Imagine of they were made in a natural walking pose; the toy would tend to fall down on the side where the legs are further apart. My Papo centaur has this problem; it tends to fall down on the side where the front leg and the back leg are put far apart. This is what the makers of the mammoths wanted to avoid!
