Miners working in the Klondike gold fields have discovered the frozen mummified remains of a near-complete baby woolly mammoth. Members of the local Tr’ondek Hwech’in First Nation named the calf Nun Cho ga, which translates to ‘big baby animal’, according to the Yukon government. Photos of the rare find were shared on Twitter by Professor Dan Shugar. The female animal would have died during the ice age, i.e. more than 30,000 years ago. 14,000-Year-Old Puppy Found a Decade Ago in Russia Ate a Wolly Rhinoceros as Last Meal! (View Pics).
Being part of the recovery of Nun cho ga, the baby woolly mammoth found in the permafrost in the Klondike this week (on Solstice and Indigenous Peoples’ Day!), was the most exciting scientific thing I have ever been part of, bar none. https://t.co/WnGoSo8hPk pic.twitter.com/JLD0isNk8Y
