‘It is great luck that the blood preserved and we plan to study it carefully,’ he said. ‘For now our suspicion is that mammoth blood contains a kind of natural anti-freeze.’
He suggested that the animal was so well preserved because it did not ‘defrost and then freeze again’.
‘We suppose the mammoth fell into water or got bogged down in a swamp, could not free herself and died,’ he added.
‘Due to this fact the lower part of the body was preserved very well.’
