Scientific Life Of Mammoth Museum
December 17, 2015 21:11


Mammoths are an exclusive wealth of Yakutia, the same as gold and diamonds. The first “officially registered” mammoth’s remains were found in Yakutia back in 1799. Every year since that year spring rivers have regularly washed more and more fossils out of the Yakut soil - there is a version that this abundance of discoveries caused the expression “Russia - the native land of elephants”.

A lot of remains of prehistoric animals (mammoths and woolly rhinoceroses, buffalos, musk oxen, cave lions) that will be enough for several museums have been found during the whole period of excavations. The Mammoth Museum, the only one in the world, operates in Yakutsk, at the Republican Academy of Sciences - other countries simply do not have such a large number of exhibits.
