A nearly whole newborn woolly mammoth that has been mummified was found by a miner. On June 21, 2022, a mammoth was found in the Klondike gold fields in Canada’s far north. Since then, it has been referred to as Nun cho ga, which translates to “big baby animal” in the Trondk Hwchin’s Hän language.
The mammoth’s skin and hair were still in tact when it was discovered. Dr. Grant Zazula, a paleontologist, described it as “gorgeous and one of the most spectacular mummified ice period animals ever unearthed in the world.”
Among the Rest
In Dawson, Yukon, a short distance from Canada’s border with Alaska, a mammoth was found. During an excavating project, she was discovered. Over 30,000 years ago, woolly mammoths, enormous steppe bison, cave lions, and wild horses all frequented the region.
