Frozen mammoth specimens make their world-first public debut in Japan

Recently, the bodies of several woolly mammoths ― giant land mammals said to have gone extinct around 10,000 years ago ― have been uncovered from frozen soil in the Sakha Republic, Russia, as a result of global warming. Unlike regular fossils, the excavated mammoths, having been preserved in the frozen earth, are extraordinarily lifelike. The head of a frozen mammoth was first exhibited in Japan at the 2005 Expo, causing a great deal of excitement. This exhibition displays various frozen animal specimens, including some which have never been exhibited anywhere before.
