Moscow: A neighbourhood adventure has led a 11-year-old Russian boy to discover remains of a 30,000-year-old nearly intact woolly mammoth complete with skin,hair,bones and even reproductive organs.Yevgeny Salinder found the remains of the mammoth on Sopochnaya Karga cape in Russias northernmost peninsula of Taymyr,the Moscow News reported.
The body which has been named Zhenya after the boys nickname is that of a male mammoth which died at the age of 15-16,approximately 30,000 years ago.The total weight of the remains is more than 500 kg,and that includes the right half of the body with soft tissue,skin and hair,scull with one ear,a tusk,various bones and even reproductive organs,the Dolgano-Nentsky administration website announced.It is believed to be the second best preserved mammoth discovery and the best mammoth find since 1901,when another mammoth was discovered near Beryozovka River in Yakutia,the paper reported.
