Mammoths had Diseases Similar to Humans - Discovery by Russian Scientists

Scientists of the Tomsk State University have studied the collection of remnants of Yakut mammoths and found traces of diseases in animals that are typical for humans. Thus, the researchers have confirmed the theory of mammoths' extinction due to mineral starvation caused by climate changes.

      "The study has shown that almost half of the ancient mammals' bones bear signs of serious pathologies typical of the human skeletal system too," - the press service of the TSU reported.

      In particular, scientists have discovered a disease in mammoths, called  "loose cartilage" or "melon-seed body", i.e. the separation of a bone fragment or cartilaginous tissue freely located in the joint cavity. Another anomaly in mammoths was the openness of transverse foramen in the cervical vertebrae.
