Scientists say that the earth is approximately 4.543 billion years old, and as such, we still have a lot to learn about our planet’s history. Sure, fossils and other remains can speak volumes about how the earth used to be, but that doesn’t mean that we’ve learned all there is to know about ancient or prehistoric life.
Now, people everywhere are fascinated by an odd creature found in the Siberian permafrost that some believe could be a long-extinct species. It’s a fascinating mystery that has people from around the world guessing what it might be.
Udachny translates to “lucky” or “successful” in Russian, and indeed it was a stroke of luck that these Siberian miners found something even more priceless than the diamonds that they were searching for. For further study, the mummy was taken to Yakutsk, the capital city of the region. Hopefully, we’ll learn more about this fascinating creature soon!
