Ohhhh my goodness just had to post this!!!  I love fossil hunting and anything history, prehistoric stuff, and the like.  I’m horrible at writing so bear with me! I end up rambling hence the name of my blog 🙂

I’m still trying to figure this whole blogging thing out.  I’m not sure how to share a page when it doesn’t give you an option too for wordpress.  So I’m copying and pasting with a link to the actual page.  There is also a short video on the actual page showing the juvenile mammoth.

Mammoth carcass found in

Siberia

The discovery of a well-preserved juvenile mammoth suggests that ancient humans “stole” mammoths from hunting lions, scientists say.

Bernard Buigues and Professor Alice Roberts were part of the team which unwrapped the frozen mammoth, known as Yuka, after its journey from the location where tusk hunters found it in northern Siberia.

Scientists have since completed an initial assessment of Yuka.

“Its foot pads and thick strawberry-blonde hair are exquisitely preserved,” noted Professor Alice Roberts.

The mammoth was filmed as part of the BBC/Discovery co-production programme Woolly Mammoth: Secrets from the Ice, which will be broadcast in the UK on Wednesday 4 April at 21:00 BST on BBC Two, and in the US on the Discovery Channel at a later date.
