Caption: Mammoth museum, Khatanga, Siberia. This tunnel has been excavated out of the permafrost layer (the layer of permanently frozen soil). Mammoth tusks and bones (left) are seen along the tunnel wall. The mammoth was an elephant-like mammal that inhabited northern regions of the world and became extinct only a few thousand years ago. Khatanga is on the Khatanga River, in the Krasnoyarsk region in northern Siberia, Russia. Thousands of mammoth remains have been discovered in the permafrost in Siberia. Photographed on 1 January 2003.
