Waking the Baby Mammoth

Scientists perform microsurgery on Lyuba, a baby mammoth that discovered on the bank of a remote Siberian river in May 2007. Thousands of years after her species became extinct, she is in amazing condition and unlike any other animal ever dug out of the frozen earth.
A perfectly preserved baby woolly mammoth mysteriously appears on a Siberian riverbank, triggering an extraordinary investigation into her life and death at the end of the Ice Age.
