One of the physiological things that humans are better at most other animals is sheer endurance over distance. Animals are generally good at sprinting but shitty at marathons, humans can be conditioned to just walk or run after animals until they collapse from exhaustion. Canines can kinda do this, but not as well, obviously.
>>7802852 Natural selection equipped humans to understand and comprehend medium objects moving at medium speeds. Our natural ability is to survive and avoid being eaten by predatory animals on the African plains. We were not equipped with the ability to understand things like quantum physics and rocket engine design, those things are a fortuitous happenstance of our larger brain and physical attributes that are tailored to facilitate building things with our hands. So naturally, these skills aid in the gathering of small bands of Humans to overcome large animals.
Humans are predators that are capable of adapting and being effective in multiple different biomes, similar to wolves and to a lesser extant - lions. Humans are prevalent across multiple continents for roughly the same reasons that other moderately large predators have also been.
Larger megafauna such as woolly mammoths often depend on more fragile ecosystems, once the pleistocene steppe was gone, woolly mammoths were on borrowed time.
Humans were, contrary to popular belief, probably not the sole cause of megafauna extinctions at the end of the last ice age, climate change, and ecosystem shifting was probably the real nail in the coffin. Humans hunted many species of larger megafauna for very long periods before we see sudden population declines.
