Interesting find. However, if I were an ancient hunter scratching out a hardscrabble existence off the land, I would have probably taken ALL the meat for my band of hungry mouths, especially the tender vittles off a youngster....never look a gift mammoth in the mouth, I says.....

The parts that are missing are as mystifying as the parts that remain.

Who takes a spinal column?

Maybe it was a "Predator"? ...from the movie "Predator" with Arnold Schwarzenegger...

northern nomadic peoples often feed their huskies by meat found in permafrost - most of the mammoths and other now extinct fauna ended up in huskies stomachs.

I've heard of that; I wonder how often it really happened?

Very interesting. I watched the programme a couple of days ago. It was mentioned that their hair could be anything from blonde, through ginger, to auburn.
