The body of a frozen woolly mammoth has been discovered by a reindeer herder in a subarctic region of Siberia. It has its trunk and eyes virtually intact and even some fur remaining, said Alexei Tikhonov, deputy director of the Russian Academy of Sciences' Zoological Institute. Wooly mammoths are thought to have existed between 40,000 and 10,000 years ago.
The Ice Age beast has been sent to Japan for study by scientists. Bi-ig mistake. The Japanese said they thought it would taste very good and were preparing vats of whale soup to go with it.
