Mummified Mammoth Unearthed

10,000 year-old mummified mammoth is described as the most perfect ever discovered.

According to Mail Online, not only is its discovery providing new clues about the lifestyle of these prehistoric giants, it has also raised the tantalising prospect that its DNA could be used to create a cloned mammoth, bringing the creatures back from extinction.

The female calf was discovered in the frozen soils of north-west Siberia by a reindeer herder, Yuri Khudi.

The mummified carcass had recently been exposed to the air and was lying on her side -- in exactly the same position she had been when she died.
