40,000-year-old wolf's head found preserved by ice
With its dry fur and wet tongue, this wolf almost looks like he's still alive. But in fact, it's the remains of an animal which experts believe roamed Earth 40,000 years ago. It was discovered in the Abyisky district of northern Yakutia in Russia by a local in August 2018. Thanks to Siberia's permafrost, its brain, fur, tissues and even its tongue have been perfectly preserved. Russian scientists are now studying the head using latest technologies along with scientists from Japan and Sweden.
