Did the ancient Egyptians know of pygmy mammoths?

Came across this fascinating article about a picture on the tomb wall of Rekhmire, 'Governor of the Town' of Thebes, and vizier of Egypt during the reigns of Tuthmose III and Amenhotep II (c. 1479 to 1401 BCE) during the XVIII Dynasty that may be of a pygmy mammoth!! Read about it here.
