Fully intact 40,000 year old baby wooly mammoth found

These stories of mammoth’s found fully preserved in the arctic permafrost are always fascinating to me. Here is a National Geo report from July of 2007 and here is another report today of another mammoth found in the same area.

A man herding reindeer in Russia’s Arctic found the perfectly-preserved, 40,000-year-old body of a baby woolly mammoth.

The creature’s carcass was sticking up out of the permafrost, local officials said. The discovery came in the same area a mammoth calf dubbed Lyuba was found four years ago, authorities told Reuters. They are sending out an expedition to examine the find and possibly recover it.
