Perfectly Preserved Cave Bear From Ice Age Discovered In Russia (Pics) by Explorers(m): 6:27pm On Sep 16
Reindeer herders in Russia have found an immaculately preserved carcass of an Ice Age cave bear.

The find, revealed by the melting permafrost, was discovered on the Bolshoy Lyakhovsky Island in northwestern Russia with its teeth and even its nose intact.

A preliminary analysis of the terrifying-looking remains indicated that the adult bear lived 22,000 to 39,500 years ago.

Harsh Russian temperatures in the northern region an account for the incredibly well preserved specimen.


The head of the Ice Age cave bear found on Bolshoy Lyakhovsky Island in an unbelievable state of preservation considering its age.

It is necessary to carry out radiocarbon analysis to determine the precise age of the bear, revealed by melting permafrost.

A preliminary analysis of the terrifying-looking remains indicated that the adult bear lived 22,000 to 39,500 years ago.


The cave bear (Ursus spelaeus) is a prehistoric species or subspecies that lived in Eurasia in the Middle and Late Pleistocene period and became extinct about 15,000 years ago.

The Ice Age cave bear was found on Bolshoy Lyakhovsky Island, or Great Lyakhovsky, the largest of the Lyakhovsky Islands belonging to the New Siberian Islands archipelago between the Laptev Sea and the East Siberian Sea in northern Russia.

Was it preserved by humans or nature did it because the weather is perfect for such.

Well preserved indeed. Looks like it died some days ago if we ignore the permafrost.

Imagine what they'll find under the ice in Antarctica and the underneath the sands in the Gobi&sahara deserts. History is buried down there.

grin All I can say is, in climes where education and knowledge of science has profitable and applicable knowledge... Findings like this are usually a feather in the hat of Mother Science.

But o'er here, well.... We have other things to worry about... Superstitions, poverty and shocking-leaders et al

If radio carbon dating says it is only thousands of years old, why would they lie?
