Thirty-nine thousand years old and finally in the limelight.
A frozen woolly mammoth named Yuka goes on display in Japan.
The female was found in Russia and was 10 years old when she died. Scientists have made several unsuccessful attempts to revive the species.
Mammoth expert Norihisa Inuzuka said Yuka should provide more information about these creatures.
"With this, we can dig deeper into the reasons why species became extinct and apply the lessons learnt to the human race which might be facing its own dangers of extinction. I think it can help us learn to reflect more deeply about our own existence."
The exhibition runs from July 13th to September 16th.
