Baby mammoth "Dima". The well-preserved carcass of the baby woolly mammoth named "Dima", whose frozen body was found in 1977 in eastern Siberia, Russia. He was between 6 and 12 months old when he died, probably by becoming stuck in mud. Scientists have chemically treated the body and have conducted an extensive study of its organs, muscles, brain, heart and cells. Since woolly mammoths (Mammuthus primigenius) became extinct only a few thousand years ago and lived in cold temperate regions, specimens well-preserved in frozen permafrost have been found.
