Mammoth The dung was packed within the intestine of this frozen woolly mammoth. It is known as the Yukagir mammoth for the Siberian village near where it was found in 2002. The mammoth's permafrost tomb preserved its head, tusks, front legs, and parts of its stomach and intestinal tract. From its bones and enormous tusks, the scientists who rushed to the site (including mammoth experts Dick Mol, left, and Larry Agenbroad) guessed that the mammoth was an old male that when alive stood over nine feet tall at the shoulder and weighed four to five tons. From the dung ball, they learned heaps more.
