Lyuba the baby mammoth
In my "Raven's blog" over at the Crypto Haven, I talk about "Waking the baby mammoth" ,
an extraordinary National Geographic documentary that takes you on a journey into the life and death of a baby mammoth who lay in near perfect preservation in the perma-frost of Russia's Yamal Peninsula for 40,000 years.
Read about little "Lyuba" and also how Japanese scientists are working to use frozen DNA to bring back the woolly mammoth within 5 years time :
