Baby mammoth found in Siberia

To celebrate World Animal Day Boston.com has published this remarkable set of photos of animals from around the world. This was one of my favourites. An international team of scientists perform an autopsy and DNA analysis on Lyuba, a baby woolly mammoth. Sucked to her death in a muddy river bed, Lyuba spent 40,000 years frozen in the Siberian permafrost where her body was so perfectly preserved traces of her mother’s milk remained in her belly.
