The Most Complete Wooly Mammoth Ever Found

A female wooly mammoth that died about 30,000 years ago was found in the Yukon in 2022. The baby was only 30 or 35 days old and ended up wholly preserved with some skin and hair. Scientists will extract DNA to compare to that of elephants.

The wooly mammoth baby girl

She was found in the Klondike gold fields within Trʼondëk Hwëchʼin Traditional Territory. While excavating through the permafrost, miners working on Eureka Creek uncovered the frozen woolly mammoth. This is a significant discovery for Trʼondëk Hwëchʼin and the Government of Yukon. Trʼondëk Hwëchʼin Elders named the mammoth calf Nun Cho Ga, meaning “big animal baby” in the Hän language, Yukon reported.

The Yukon has a world-renowned fossil record of ice age animals, but mummified remains with skin and hair are rarely unearthed. Nun Cho Ga is the most complete mummified mammoth found in North America.

They were grazing animals and went extinct about 4,000 years ago.

Woolly mammoths roamed parts of Earth’s northern hemisphere for at least half a million years. They were still in their heyday 20,000 years ago, but within 10,000 years, they were reduced to isolated populations off the coasts of Siberia and Alaska.

One widely accepted theory is that fire and the development of tools, such as spears, hooks, and nets, helped humans become ace hunters, driving woolly mammoths, ground sloths, rhinoceros*, and other mammals into extinction.

The last population known from fossils remained on Wrangel Island in the Arctic Ocean until 4,000 years ago, well into the start of human civilization and concurrent with the construction of the Great Pyramid of ancient Egypt.

Watch:

*There are only two species of rhinoceros left in the world: the white rhinoceros and the black rhinoceros. However, there used to be many more species of rhinoceros. Some extinct species include the woolly rhinoceros, the Indian rhinoceros, and the Javan rhinoceros. The woolly rhinoceros was the most common rhinoceros in Europe during the Ice Age. A lot of Rhinos are in danger now.

I’m just wondering how anyone knows that this animal is a female. Hmmm?

They obviously are not a “liberal” US Supreme Court Judge. Only Conservatives can tell gender; “liberals” are too stupid.

How can the writer, M. Dowling, whoever she is, think that the rhinoceros is extinct? Seems like something I’d look up if I were uncertain. Maybe she meant Joe Biden.

I feel the same way, it’s always sad to see a dead baby anything. That we can see it 30,000 years later is simply amazing, but it shows how different Siberia must have been at that time.

Your have attacked the integrity of M. Dowling. You say she should have down more research. Look in the mirror, Your research, if you did any, was a failure. She is real an se is special.

Masters Degree for me. But, we are never taught the truth, only what is accepted science / allowed at the time. There is no truth, only interpretation. Sad really, how everything is corrupted by power, politics or religion.
Egypt is approximately 6000 years old – the oldest known civilization (maybe Mesopotamia 8000 years)
The last great flood occurred during the younger dryas. est 12,000 years ago. Gobekli Tepe (Turkey) is about the same age. Its pillars depict the fire from the sky and great waves flooding the world.
Ice core samples from Greenland and Antarctica show dark areas that contain ash and stones with fission tracks at intervals – every 12,000 years.
It appears as if the destruction happens every 12,000 years with minor catastrophies every 6,000 years.
-Now onto religion. The first four books of the Bible are the Torah (Hebrew Bible). It speaks of the floods and how the Jews survived. The Bible is interesting because it gives “crazy” numbers concerning the ages of its people. For example: Noah was 950 yo and Methuselah was 969. Incredible!Problem: The world is ending soon (for most). It ends every 12,000 years. How do you tell the survivors that it will happen again?
If you add the ages given in the bible it is 6024 – but they are all mentioned twice (weird) – so 12,048. Just a thought. It would be amazing if the Bible was a warning.
Anyway – Mammoths were flash-frozen. But how? So simple. It’s science. It involves Boyles’s law. Something happens to eliminate a major portion of the Earth’s atmosphere causing a severe decrease in pressure. Pressure drops and freezing occurs… like immediately. Like minus 200+ degrees … brrr…
Many of us know what happens. It’s drawn on cave walls, painted on ancient canvas, carved into stone and it is the first thing God created – the Sun (light) – I know it says the sun on day 4 btw – but they made some mistakes -oops
Sorry to upset you.
And, the Sun is big – Like 1.3 million times larger than the Earth
Wanna know more?

I think we should ask Immanuel Velikovsky. Fortunately he was able to get his books into print but, as always, the “scientists” tried to stop any original ideas from escaping. “Worlds in Collision” – Immanual Velikovsky

The first 5 books of the Bible are called the Pentateuch or the Torah. The earth appears older than the Bible states because of, what is called, the mature-age process. God created everything in a mature state so that it could sustain life. He created full-grown plants, trees with fruit, animals, fish, humans. He did not create the sun and wait hundreds/thousands of years for the light and warmth of the sun to reach the earth. He created it all in a mature state so that the light and warmth were already in motion and affecting the earth. “In the beginning God created…” Mankind attempting to interpret how things were made and when they were made without consulting the Bible and heeding what God says about it is foolishness. From man’s vantage point, none of us were there and so whatever we conjure up to change or erase God and His creation out of history is a spiritual misdirect led by Satan himself. The earth is 6,000+ years old. All dinosaurs were destroyed during the flood of Noah’s time. The drastic weather changes brought about from the atmospheric cataclysm during the events surrounding the flood killed the dinosaurs and diminished the ages of men and women from that point forward.
