Meet Yuka. The carcass of a juvenile woolly mammoth, soft tissues beautifully preserved by the Siberian permafrost. There is evidence that the animal was brought down by apex predators — probably lions — and then poached by another predator, MAN. If the initial findings are confirmed, this will be the first mammoth carcass with preserved soft tissues ever found that bears evidence of interaction with humans. Yuka was about two and a half years old when it perished at least 10,000 years ago.

BLUE BABE: North Americas first frozen mummified remains of an ice age steppe bison, the 36,000 year-old mummy named "Blue Babe." The discovery of Blue Babe's mummy has vaulted our knowledge of the ice-age steppe bison to a completely new level, serving as a shiny blue window into the prehistoric past. The display of the mummy is not the actual full-fledged find – Blue's tanned and treated skin has been removed from the carcass and placed on a plaster replica.
