Russian Mammoth Goes to Japan

The fossil baby mammoth named Lyuba that was found in May 2007 on Yamal has been delivered from Moscow to Tokyo for research purposes.
      
      A refrigerating chamber with the well-preserved 50 kilogram body of the baby mammoth has been transferred from the Narita international airport to Jikei University in Komae, a suburb of Tokyo.
      
      Scientists assume that Lyuba died at the aged of 6 months and its body lied in permafrost for about 37 thousand years. According to Professor Naoki Suzuki, the head of the mammoth study group, in the history of science it is the first mammoth that has remained intact.
      
      After tomographic scanning the Russian baby mammoth will be for the first time displayed to public in one of the exhibition halls nearby Tokyo Central Railway Station from the 2nd of January.
