In Yakutia, they found the perfectly preserved cave lion cub
Researchers will study the newly discovered remains of the young cave lion and determine whether it is possible to clone these animals in the future.
The remains of the cub of a cave lion were found in the Abyisky district of Yakutia on the banks of the Tirekhtyakh river. Their age can be up to 50,000 years. According to researchers, the new find was preserved better than the lions, found in 2015 on the bank of the river Uyandina. About the find reports The Siberian Times.
Researchers believe that the lion cub could not belong to the same litter as the animals found in 2015. He is clearly older and larger, besides being found relatively far from them.
