A well-preserved fossil of a mammoth was recently found on the Indian River in the Yukon region of Canada. The team of excavators was moving mud at the Little Flake mine site when they discovered a tusk of the giant ancient animal. They went on to find other parts like teeth, legs and ribs. The number of bones excavated by the team could make two almost-complete skeletons. During the Ice Age, the Yukon region was part of Beringia, which was an ice-free area that connected Siberia and Alaska. Today, this region is home to Canada’s Kluane National Park and Reserve, which includes Mount Logan, the highest mountain in Canada.
