In Russia, found a frozen mammoth liquid blood

Кровь мамонта

On an island in the north of Siberia found frozen mammoth remains – his blood is still liquid. Animal 10,000 years had been lying on one of the islands Lyakhovsky Novosibirsk archipelago off the northern coast of Siberia. Researchers from Northeastern University in Yakutsk poked the remains of an ice ax and – suddenly – blood flowed.

“Fragments of muscle tissue, which we found in the body have a natural color of fresh meat” – said Semyon Grigoryev, director of the University Museum of mammoths and the head of the expedition. – “The reason for such conservation is that the lower part of the body was frozen in pure ice, and the upper part was found in the center of the tundra. We found two body parts separately. ”

The temperature was 10 degrees Celsius below zero when the mammoth was finally discovered. Therefore, the discovery of liquid blood explorers plunged into shock.

“You can imagine that there are certain blood mammoth cryoprotectants quality” – says Gregory. – “The blood is very dark, she was found in the icy void spaces below the belly, and when we broke the cavities with a pick, it flowed.”

Analysis of the teeth and bones of a mammoth found that he was 50-60 years old. More precisely it – partly because her gender was determined from other parts of the body, discovered separately. Researchers believe that mamontiha fell through the ice, escaping from predators.

North-East team plans to attract international scientists to study the Mammoth this summer, in July and August, and in order not to risk remains during recovery, decided to dig them out and deliver to the nearest town by helicopter.

Grigoriev looking for mammoths for years, and his discovery of liquid blood, like previous studies, revived the debate about the possible cloning mammoths. Not so long ago, we discussed whether it is possible to resurrect dinosaurs based on fossilized eggs, and found out what does not. However, liquid blood mammoth could be much more effective finding.
