In the remote regions of Russia, miners have stumbled upon an animal corpse, which might either be an extinct type of wolverine or a new dinosaur species.
Found in Udachny, in the Mirninsky District of the Sakha Republic in Russia, the mummified animal was found by diamond miners.
The animal is almost perfectly intact, seeing as how the average temperature there rangers from minus 43, 6 degrees to minus 35, 2.
The sand in which the body was discovered dates way back to an era that lasted from 252 to 66 million years ago, the age of the reptiles.
The frozen beast is being taken to Yakutsk for an examination. The frozen wastes of Siberia are prone to hiding fossilized remains of strange creatures.
Early this year a 12000 year old dog was thawed in the same location. The ice preserved the dog so well that it actually had its brain intact. This is the only recorded discovery of a creature from that time to be preserved in such a way.
There are even attempts to clone the animal as Hwang Woo-suk, a South Korean scientist, took samples of the dog. He is the world leader in cloning technology and is now checking to see if he can mix the DNA of the dog with one of modern specie and see if he can bring the animal back to life.
