For the first time in Russia a unique Yakut mammoth will be exhibited.

For the first time in Russia, a mammoth will be displayed with traces of the impact of a primitive man and a cave lion, said Albert Protopopov, head of the department for studying mammoth fauna of the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia).

"From July 5 to October, an exhibition of the mammoth Yuka, which was found in Yakutia, will be organized in Vladivostok. This exhibit has never been exhibited in Russia before," Protopopov specified. in Moscow".

This mammoth was the first found with traces of the impact of primitive man and a cave lion. "The mammoth was cut from above and the fat hump and spine were removed, which suggests that this operation was carried out by a primitive man. Also, traces of claws and teeth of a cave lion were found on the mammoth," said Protopopov.
All these facts make the appearance of primitive people on the territory of Northern Yakutia more ancient. "A mammoth lived in this area 39 thousand years ago and the traces of impact found indicate that already at that time a person lived in this territory. Although the ancient human site found in Yakutia dates back to a later period," the scientist specified.
Protopopov also added that the mammoth Yuka is the only mammoth found with a preserved brain. "Research is already underway on the mammoth brain in Moscow in cooperation with the Institute of Human Physiology," he said.
The approximate age of the female mammoth Yuki, which was found in the Ust-Yansky district of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) on the Laptev Sea coast in 2009, is 6-11 years.
In addition to mammoth Yuki, more than 10 valuable exhibits of the mammoth fauna, which had never been exhibited before, will be presented at the exhibition.
