Mammoths are large, tough enemies found in the Ice Caves. Like Yetis, they are not aggressive but will harm the Spelunker if they accidentally run into one, or one is caught in its icy breath.

The Mammoth's ice breath attack is identical to blasts from the Freeze Ray, causing the player and any other enemies to instantly freeze solid and become immobile.
This does no damage directly, but the block of ice will shatter if it takes damage or falls any distance, instantly killing anything caught inside, including the Spelunker.

The ice breath has long range but only travels horizontally, so it's best to attack Mammoths from above, never entering their lines of attack.
Mammoths are best killed with ranged weapons or bombs, and move quite slowly which makes chain-jumping with the Spike Shoes quite easy as well. If you don't have any other means, placing a mine in their path is also an effective way of dealing with them. It's recommended to avoid them if possible.
