According to CBS, an almost perfectly preserved body of a baby Woolly Mammoth has been found in Canada. The mummified animal was found by a miner in Canada’s Klondike gold fields. It is believed to have frozen to death during the Ice Age more than 30,000 years ago, scientists say.
The baby mammoth’s skin and hair have remained intact since then. Researchers have named the creature Nun cho ga, which means “big baby animal” in the Hän language. Yukon paleontologist Dr. Grant Zazula said, “It has been one of my lifelong dreams to come face to face with a real woolly mammoth. “That dream came true today. Nun cho ga is beautiful and one of the most incredible mummified ice age animals ever discovered in the world. I am excited to get to know her more.”
