Some Russian scientists who were looking for the tusks of mammoths discovered last year that the foal in the Batagaika-crater in eastern Siberia is. From the autopsy it appeared that the carcass of the foal barely been affected by the ravages of time. So was the fur of the animal is still in very good condition. “Now, we can even say what color of thread to the extinct horses of the pleistocene had,” says Semyon Grigoriev, director of the Mammoetmuseum in Jakoetsk, to CNN.Read also the Remains of a mammoth discovered at Brussels-North
The discovery of liquid blood and urine is even rarer, so indicates Grigoriev. According to the scientist, it is the second time ever that liquid blood was found in an animal from the pleistocene, the epoch that around 2.58 million years ago began, and about 11.700 works years ago ended. Researchers found in 2013 in the frozen carcass of a mammoth liquid blood and urine. The discovery was Little Lyakhovsky Island, off the northeastern coast of Russia.Clones
“Normally, it coagulates the blood, or the powder, even if the carcass is still so well preserved seems to be,” says the Russian researcher. “This is because moisture and other biological fluids in thousands of years gradually evaporate.”
The Russian scientists that the discovery did have the blood and the urine were transferred to South Korean researchers from the Sooam Biotech Research Foundation. They want to try a clone of the colt.
The foal itself will be from June to september 2020 in Japan exhibited during an exhibition about mammoths.
