A local resident from Yakutia, Siberia found the ancient carcass of a juvenile woolly rhino in melting permafrost.

Researchers said the carcass is between 20,000 and 50,000 years old, and the most complete young woolly rhino ever found.

Most of the rhino’s fur coat, hooves, and internal organs are intact — researchers even found the animal’s horn nearby.

One expert thinks the rhino drowned when it was three or four years old.
