Remains of mammoth found in Russia

Remains of mammoth found in  Russia
In the North of Russia  archaeologists have found remains of a mammoth.  According to the scientists, the remains are almost 10,000 years old and weigh about 400 kilograms.

The remains of the mammoth were initially discovered by a local resident while hacking wood in the forest. The archeologists say the bones are well-preserved.

The mammoth will be transported to a laboratory for tests and thorough study in a special refrigerated container.   And after that it will be on display in a local museum.
