How to use woolly in a sentence?

  1. Alan Cooper:

    We found that the Neanderthals from Spy Cave in Belgium consumed woolly rhinoceros and European wild sheep, supplemented with wild mushrooms, those from El Sidrón Cave on the other hand showed no evidence for meat consumption... showing quite different lifestyles between the two groups.

  2. Taronga Zoo:

    At this age she would naturally still be with her mother, so the soft toy gives her something to snuggle for comfort, it’s not as fluffy and woolly as an adult Brushtail Possum, but she clings to it using her claws and teeth as she would do with mum in the wild.

  3. Love Dalén:

    I think one of the simplest explanations is that hunter-gatherers may have caught wolf pups, which is extremely easy to do, and kept them in captivity as sentinels against the large predators that roamed the landscapes of the last Ice Age - bears, cave lions, etc. as well as other dangerous mammals - mammoths, woolly rhinos, other humans.
