Extinct cave lion cub in perfect condition found in Siberia

❝ The pre-historic animal was found in permafrost on the bank of Tirekhtykh River of the Abyisky district of Yakutia by a local resident Boris Berezhnov.

Excited scientists unveiled the discovery – its facial features clearly visible – in Yakutsk…

❝ The animal was aged around one and a half to two months old when it perished. It is not yet clear whether the cub was male or female.

Expert Dr Albert Protopopov said: ‘It is a perfectly preserved lion cub, all the limbs have survived. There are no traces of external injuries on the skin.’

❝ The preservation is so good that it raises hopes of cloning the species back to life, he said.

RTFA. Terrific photographs. The concept appears to be realistic – but, only research and investigation will tell.
