The baby mammoth has been dead for 42,000 years. A breeder of reindeer found the fossil, which was named Lyuba, preserved in the permafrost of Siberia, in 2007. Scientists intend to clone a mammoth from a preserved carcass of another fossil.

Russia and South Korea signed an agreement in March for a joint survey to recreate a woolly mammoth from stem cells. The idea is to use technology to extract the nucleuses of the frozen cells, exchanging the nucleuses of elephants' ova for nucleuses of cells of mammoths. The embryo elephant-mammoth would be inserted in the womb of an elephant and, so, the species would be "revived." In February, Russian researchers were able to resurrect an extinct flower from tissues frozen for more than 30,000 years in permafrost of Siberia and reaffirms that the tissue can be preserved in ice for thousands of years, paving the way for a possible resurrection mammals of the Ice Age.
