This baby mammoth, which has been preserved for over 40 000 years, will embark on a tour across Asia.
The perfectly preserved baby mammoth is called Lyuba, and was discovered by a reindeer herder in 2007.
Apparently the mammoth died at the age of one month, in a mudslide, and was trapped there for all this time, until the discovery. The internal organs
are still intact, and provided alot of info for scientists. There was even some milk from her mother still in her tummy!
I think it would be great to actually see this baby mammoth in person.
And, who knows, maybe one day there will be mammoths roaming the earth again.
Ps, There was a thread about the discovery of the mammoth, here
. So not a duplicate
thread, just wanted to share that its going on tour now!
