(2013) As global warming thaws the ground in Russia, researchers have been making some amazing finds. Now, Russian researchers claim to have made what could be the most incredible discovery of all: the preserved blood and meat of a woolly mammoth. "When we broke the ice beneath [the mammoth's] stomach, the blood flowed out from there," expedition head Semyon Grigoriev told the AFP. Grigoriev told the AFP that the female mammoth died at around age 60, about 10,000 to 15,000 years ago. Part of the animal became covered by a frozen pool of water, allowing its tissue to remain better preserved than any other mammoth that they've found. The team also believes that mammoth blood may contain anti-freeze properties.
