Animal Armageddon – Fire And Ice (Discovery Channel HD Documentary)
The eruption of Lake Toba 74,000 years ago kills the giant mammals in prehistoric Asia. The lava and ash starts out in Sumatra, but soon spreads to the rest of the world, driving Elasmotheriums, Sumatran Leopards, Asian Pumas, European Cave Lions, and Stegodons, to extinction. Our very ancestors, the earliest Homo sapiens, also nearly become extinct, as well. However, the humans manage to survive, although they do suffer a genetic Bottleneck, in their population. However, the extinction of all of these other creatures then paves the way, for new species, such as the Woolly Mammoth, to replace them.
