  • A man following a reindeer herd in northwestern Siberia made the discovery of a lifetime when he passed by a lake on July 20; poking out of the water was the enormous skull of a woolly mammoth dating back at least 10,000 years.
  • After looking at a photo of the Tadibe mammoth’s skeletal remains, Fisher noted that one of the pachyderm’s ribs looks like it had been broken or fractured, but had later healed.
