Mummified, baby woolly mammoth frozen over 30,000 years ago found in Canada: 'It’s amazing'

Wooly mammoth

Miners in Canada have found a mummified, baby woolly mammoth that scientists believe was frozen during the Ice Age over 30,000 years ago, according to a news release from the Yukon government and Tr'ondek Hwech'in First Nation.

According to the release, the woolly mammoth was uncovered while miners were excavating through the permafrost on Tuesday, in Klondike gold fields within the Trʼondëk Hwëchʼin traditional territory.

The baby was later identified to be a young, female woolly mammoth who died tens of thousands of years ago.

The mammoth calf was named Nun cho ga, meaning “big baby animal” in the Hän language, by Trʼondëk Hwëchʼin Elders.
