Top Ten Frozen Animals Earth is billions and billions of years old. This fair planet has seen many ages come and go— it has seen horrid winters and terrifying summers. It has seen ice ages and the deathly cold that comes with it. It has also seen the rise and fall of thousands, if not millions, of lifeforms. Today, we walk the earth with very little knowledge of what this planet has seen and experienced. However, sometimes, we stumble upon animal carcasses that have been preserved by the elements. We rarely ever stumble upon them, but when we do, they teach us the most intriguing and exciting things— things we would never have known about our planet if we hadn't found them. Today on 100M, we'll be going through 10 of these amazing finds. 10 The Puppy Who Ate A Wooly Rhino In 2011, researchers discovered the ageold preserved buddy of a puppy from a site in Siberia. The Puppy was said to be about 14,000 years old— but shockingly, that wasn't the only remarkable thing about the puppy. It wasn't even the most important thing about the puppy. Inside the puppy's stomach was a furry piece of tissue that looked like it belonged to a cave lion. Scientists came to this conclusion because of its yellow furry fur. However, further research has now shown that the tissues belonged to a woolly Rhinoceros. Interestingly, scientists say they have no idea how the flesh of a rhino got into the stomach of a puppy— specifically because the woolly rhinos were supposed to have been extinct 14500 years ago. https://edition.cnn.com/2020/08/17/eu... 9 Ice Age Bear The last Ice age was about a hundred thousand years ago. That ice age saw the rise of animals who were extraordinarily capable of dealing with the coldest conditions, and one of such animals was this Ice Age Cave Bear. This bear was found with most of its remains perfectly preserved. The find was made by Reindeer herders in the Lyakhovsky Islands. Before this bear was found, only bones of its kind had been excavated. But this remain was of Importance because even its nose was still intact. Its nose wasn't the only part of the animal that was perfectly preserved. There was also its internal organs and all its soft tissue in place. The discovery was said to be of "world Importance" by scientists involved with the work. According to them, the cave bear species found became extinct about 15,000 years ago, and analysts have said that the bear is about twentytwo thousand years old. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.... intl/index.html
8 Dog Or Wolf? Russian scientists discovered the body of this nearperfectly preserved puppy in Yakutsk, northern Siberia. The animal had been preserved by permafrost and it had most of its body perfectly intact. With radiocarbon dating, researchers were able to discover that the puppy was about eighteen thousand years. However, even the most extensive tests have been unable to show whether the puppy was a dog or a wolf. Yes, that's right. We know how old the puppy is, but we haven't been able to find out whether it's a dog or a wolf. That just goes to show that even science has its limitations. However, some other researchers have come up with an interesting theory. What if, they contend, the puppy was from a population that was ancestral to both wolves and dogs? This seems likely because 18,000 years ago was around the same period man started to domesticate dogs. https://edition.cnn.com/travel/articl... 7 The Frozen Bird Of Siberia In 2018, a frozen bird was found in the hills of Siberia. The bird had been well preserved in the permafrost, and scientists knew that it was a pretty old bird. However, they didn't expect to learn that the bird was about 46 thousand years old. Yes. 46 thousand years. And it was still as fresh as the day it hit the ground and died. The bird was analysed and was found to be a female horned lark which roamed the earth about 49 thousand years ago. It was the first of its kind to be found perfectly preserved that way, and scientists believe that it will help the world understand lots of different things about earth at the time of its death. For example, we'll be able to learn about the ecology and the evolution of a range of species that lived in that period.
