30000 year old wooly mammoth carcass was initially found by young Russian boy

30000 year old wooly mammoth carcass was initially found by young Russian boy, and is now being studied by scientists, who consider it one of the best preserved finds in history For a long-extinct Ice Age species, mammoths have been making a lot of news lately—and the remarkable, hairy finds simply keep on coming. An 11-year-old Russian boy has reportedly stumbled upon the 30000 year old carcass of one of the colossal beasts on the Tamir Peninsula, in a serendipitous scientific discovery. The carcass is already considered one of the most impressive finds in the history of Ice Age paleontology. The boy, who hails from the Krasnoyarsk region of Russia, apparently stumbled upon the carcass and told his parents, who quickly alerted scientists, reports the Moscow Times. The half-ton mammoth has retained some of its organs, and there are also scraps of flesh and fur, which scientists will doubtlessly find immensely useful for research purposes.
