Woolly Mammoths

A few years ago I heard about a well-preserved baby woolly mammoth found in Siberia. Lyuba, as the scientists named her, was over 40,000 years old. I was amazed that I could watch her on television, learn the sad story of her demise (suffocation in mud), and see what existed so long ago. In honor of little Lyuba and the approaching holiday season, I dedicate today’s entry to Woolly Mammoths!
