A woolly mammoth has been placed in Trafalgar Square to highlight the effects of climate change.
Researchers warn our way of life could go the way of the mammoth
The 11.5ft (3.5m) replica was unveiled by the Natural History Museum to warn how life in Britain could undergo radical change in the next 50 years.
The museum's researchers believe we may have to adapt to "baking summers" as well as "mortally freezing winters".
"The British way of life and Homo Britanicus could go the same way as the woolly mammoth," the museum warned.
Other exhibits on display are a hippo's tusk, which was actually found in Trafalgar Square, a mammoth's tooth and a stone tool used by Neanderthals to butcher Norfolk mammoths 60,000 years ago.
