Ice Age Woolly Rhino

A well-preserved carcass of 20,000-50,000 years old Ice Age woolly rhino was recovered from permafrost in Yakutia, Russia. It is considered to be one of the best-preserved specimens of Ice Age animals found till date. Many of its internal organs were still intact, including its soft tissues, part of intestines, thick hair and a lump of fat. With increased melting of permafrost due to global warming, there is a growing number of discoveries of mammoths, woolly rhinos, ice age foal and cave lion cubs across Siberia.
