Sugar Creek Woolly Mammoth

by Alex on April 25, 2010

These woolly mammoth tusks were discovered by Lincoln College (Illinois) freshman in September 2005.
Student stumbled upon finding, while studying river mussels in Sugar Creek (Logan County).
Radiocarbon dating analysis revealed surprisingly late date – this animal died about
11,600 years ago. It is very close to commonly accepted timing of North American mammoth
extinction some 11,000 years back. One of the 11 ft tusks undergone restoration and now
is on display in Lincoln College library. These amazing photos depict the discovery.

First of all, I found a few cool pictures on ScienceFotoLibrary
These pictures are for sale by Russian Information Agency Novosti (RIA Novosti)
This is a biggest and oldest Russian news information agency with huge archive.
And they definitely have some mammoth stuff to present.
I can’t afford buying pictures from stock house for my project, so I did just that (click it):

null`

I hope I am not violating anything, but promoting the seller.
Let me know if I am wrong.

Anyways, this one is a picture that, at a first glance, could be mistaken for some terrifying
World War II documentary.
Actually this is, thanks God, just some more exciting ancient Siberian Mammoth stuff.
This is turning out to be a site of Upper Paleolithic man called Volchya Griva (means Wolf’s Mane)
This settlement is more than 14000 years old.

The site is situated near Mamontovoye village in Baraba Steppe (Southwestern Siberia)

This is incredible! I found a song about Dima! This is absolutely amazing, can you believe it!?

“Dima, the Kirgilyakh Mammoth” by Milky from highly recommended Travels With a Donkey album:

Now you know how to pronounce “Kirgilyakh”. Milky did it almost absolutely authentically :)
And there is quite a research done, no fiction, only scientific facts – died 41,000 years ago,…..LOL

Milky is a collaboration between Shazna Nessa (also known as Maria Napoleon) and her ex, Scottish indie musician Momus

Dima – the Kirgilyakh Baby Mammoth – is my countryman

5 December 2009

Dima to me is a very special baby mammoth. Baby mammoths are all special -  there are just seven of them were found on the Earth to this date, but I just love Dima simply because he is my countryman. We together were born in one remote Siberian place near Berelekh river.
The only difference is [...]
