Named Lyuba by the Siberian deer herder who discovered her in 2007, the specimen is 130cm tall and weighs 50kg.
Lyuba was found to have clay in her trunk, leading scientists to believe she suffocated on it while getting water. She is believed to have been discovered after her snowy grave thawed out during the spring and her remains washed up on a river bank.
Her only defect was the tail which has been gnawed off by animals.
Lyuba was named after the deer herder Yuri Khudi’s wife (the name also means love in Russian). She was discovered by the Yuribei River, in the Yamal-Nenets district. Even her internal organs are intact.
