While the baby female is not the first mammoth to be recently dug up in the remote region of Russia, what makes this find so special is the extent to which the animal's carcass is still intact.

Ana Navarro, head of Seville’s archeology museum, told reporters that the haul is certainly worth "several million euros," but declined to say an exact value.
Construction workers in Spain doing routine work on water pipes have unearthed 1,300 pounds of ancient Roman coins dating as far back as the third century.
This discovery is especially unique because the coins show minimal wear and tear, suggesting that they were never in circulation, The Washington Post reports.
X-ray analysis of the worn coins suggests that they bear an image of Constantine I and a soldier holding a spear.
The castle site also yielded a coin from the Ottoman Empire.
"What is incredible is a discovery of this size -- there are 19 amphoras, all complete, and I can assure you that they can't be moved by one person alone, because they weigh so much due to the coins inside," said Navarro, according to CNN.
Construction at the site has been suspended and planning for an archeological excavation is underway.
“The majority were newly minted and some of them probably were bathed in silver, not just bronze,” said Navarro, according to The Guardian.
The coins feature the inscriptions of emperors Maximian and Constantine.
