The pristine specimen of the tiny extinct rhino--the only one of its type ever found--was discovered in permafrost along the bank of a stream in Siberia's Sakha Republic



Scientists estimate that the rhino--which has been dubbed Sasha--was 18 months old when it died some 10,000 years ago, according to the Times. The specimen includes the animal's wool, an ear, an eye, nostrils, and skull and mouth.


Assuming this is factual and all the tests show it is indeed an animal dating back over 10 millenia ago, this is quite amazing! This would also mean they will travel the area to see if they can find any other rhinos nearby. I'm also surprised by how well preserved it is! I guess since it's been frozen this whole time....

There are some photos and more info in the linked story. If any of you awesomer members wish to post them in the thread feel free!

At first I thought it was still alive & was excited.

Dead, not so exciting.

Pleistocene Megafauna are always exciting finds. We should extract DNA from the wooly rhino so we can breed a lot of them and hunt them to extinction like the current black rhino........on second thought maybe the woolys are better off where they are.

It kind of looks like someone's dead rotted dog to me in the one picture. Maybe some scientists needed a good discovery to feel important.

Maybe next they'll find Woolly Humans.....

This could yield DNA allowing to bring it back.

Please try not to feel dumb. That was a Woolly MAMMOTH. This is a Woolly RHINO. Simple mistake.

Please don't bring them back Jurassic Park style, because the poachers will only want the horns, as a super dooper Chinese erectile dysfunction remedy.

Cool news though.

I got Woolly Mammoth in my head too and it took me a moment to realize it was Rhino as well.

Awesome! This one is the more preserved one. If they want to clone a surrogate elephant or a rhino with ice age genes these two specimens would obviously be what they would use.
