Remember that amazing perfectly preserved baby mammoth that was found frozen in 2007? Apparently it started to thaw out. The solution? Carry it back out into the snow.

Although her woolly coat and toenails have disintegrated, her skin and internal organs are intact.

There were even traces of her mother’s milk in her stomach.

The only damage to the mammal are bite marks from the village dogs.

Scientists, based in Siberia, hope that studying the mammoth will help explain what caused mammals from the Ice Age to vanish about 10,000 years ago.
