Prehistoric baby mammoth. Illustration of the well-preserved carcass of the baby woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) named Dima, whose frozen body was found in 1977 in eastern Siberia, Russia. Dima was a male mammoth that lived about 39,000 years ago. 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.
