I would suggest that you Google "fossil worm tubes" and see what comes up.

and Man! That's an ugly carpet...

Mammoths in the Philippines? Impossible. I also prefer the assumption of worm tubes.

Why is that impossible? Would mammoth fossils perish in the soil?
On the northern Island Luzon they found mammoth fossils.

I just looked at this map

Map showing climatic suitability for woolly mammoths in the Late Pleistocene and Holocene of Eurasia: red is increasing suitability, green is decreasing suitability. Black points are records of mammoths, black lines are the northern limit of humans

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woolly_mammoth#/mediaFile:Woolly_Mammoth_Climatic_Suitability_-_Nogu

The northernmost point is just above Korea, but you know they have found fossils in the Philippines then maybe add that information to wikipedia?

`Hi, Rumpeltroll (any name? Troll uses to mean nothing nice in Internet, and to sign uses to be considered polite. Say me old fashioned....)

Mattias said what is already (maybe in sensu lato...) in Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_extinct_animals_of_the_Philippines

Look at this, and there is known a big elephant like (maybe a mammoth without hair...) in Philippines (Luzon to be exact..).. Teeth, if my English is not that bad, look like Mattias said a mammoth tooth...

With best wishes

Lluís

Hi to everybody!
Belemnites or some other mollusks are not to be excluded. They might be elongated shells as well!

I doubt the mammoth fossils from Luzon. The southernmost real mammoth fossils were obviously found in Shandong province in China.

Yes, trolls have always been evil. But my name is from the word Rumpetroll, which is Norwegian for frog babies, You know the ones that look like sperm that swim around in lakes
Thanks for all the help.
