Baby Mammoth

Only six months old at the time of her premature demise, this female mammoth may be the best-preserved young mammoth ever found. Other than a missing tail, she appears to be pretty much intact:

Preserved in Siberian ice for more than 10,000 years, she may provide the means (or at least help to provide the means) to bring the mammoths back. It depends in part on how well her DNA was preserved.
