Some of the best-known woolly mammoths are babies, and some complete examples have been stunningly preserved in ice. The 42,000-year-old baby nicknamed Lyuba is the most complete woolly mammoth in the world, and even has the remains of its last meal preserved inside the stomach. Woolly mammoth babies lived with their parents in large herds that migrated across northern Europe and Asia.

History

The woolly mammoth is known from hundreds of skeletons, tusks, and teeth, and frozen carcasses of both adults and babies. The first woolly mammoth was scientifically named in 1799, but at this time it was placed in the same genus as the modern Asian elephant. It was eventually given a new genus name in 1828.

The most famous baby woolly mammoth in the world is nicknamed Lyuba. This baby female died 42,000 years ago when it was just one month old. It was discovered in 2007 in the frozen tundra of Siberia and is the best-preserved woolly mammoth known. The amazingly complete body of Lyuba, and other baby mammoths preserved just like it, includes the soft tissues, organs, skin and hair. However, the remains Lubya’s last meal are even preserved in her stomach. This shows that she enjoyed a diet of milk from her mother.
