Mammuthus primigenius Mummy

This famous mummified mammoth represents an individual that was 7-8 months old. Recovered from Northeastern Siberia, Dima dates to about 40,000 years in age. The unparalleled preservation of this juvenile specimen of Mammuthus primigenius provided extensive insights into the soft tissues of mammoths compared to modern elephants, such as their relatively tiny ears.
