In Northern Siberia, local reindeer herders found a skeleton of a woolly mammoth in the shallows of Pechevalavato Lake, in the Yamalo-Nenets region. Woolly mammoths lived over 10,000 years ago, but scientists assume they could have lived for longer in Alaska and Russia’s Wrangel Island off the Siberian coast. Scientists working on the site found intact pieces of the animal’s skull, lower jaw, several ribs and a ligament from the foot. They will be working with special equipment to recover the rest of the skeleton.
