40,000-year-old severed wolf's head discovered in Siberia

A wolf's head found by locals looking for mammoth ivory is seen in an undated

What they found was nothing short of extraordinary.

Head of mammoth fauna studies at the Yakutia Academy, Albert Protopopov told The Daily Telegraph: "We want to answer the question of whether these wolves disappeared or turned into modern wolves, how much they are related to modern wolves".

The frozen wolf's head, discovered past year, was found about the same time as a "perfectly preserved" lion cave cub. Not even once. This is not true of a man named Pavel Efimov, who did exactly this past year, while out looking for preserved mammoth ivory.

Protopopov says that the head will have its brain scanned, with a team at the Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm preparing to analyse its DNA.

Additionally, an ancient cave lion cub, an extinct species that is preserved in Yakutia's vast permafrost areas, is also being investigated.

As the planet warms, the region is likely to yield more remains, according to Protopopov.

Gizmodo reported in April that a 42,000-year-old horse foal was also found frozen in Siberia in 2018.

The predator with a thick "mammoth-like" coat and impressive fangs seems to have been larger than today's Siberian wolves. Scientists apparently extracted liquid blood from the foal's heart in order to determine whether or not the specimen can be cloned.

In 2016, there was an outbreak of Anthrax in western Siberia.

In 2016, Russian scientists said an outbreak of anthrax in western Siberia was due to the thawing of a frozen carcass of an infected reindeer that died 75 years ago. Diseased that existed then but don't exist now could potentially cause an outbreak of massive proportions.

While it is vital to scientific breakthroughs to find such unusually well-preserved remains, these remains still come from a vastly different time compared to now.
