Scientists found a body of a mammoth in Siberia. It is 10.000 years old.

The scientist says that the animal's meat looks fresh. It is a little bit red. They also have the animal's blood. The scientists took small parts of the blood so that they can study it.

The blood is very good quality. They would like to use it and clone a mammoth. Scientists tried to clone a mammoth in the 1990s for the first time.

Interesting words: scientist (clever person who is an expert in something), mammoth (big elephant with long hair), Siberia (part of Russia), clone (copy).
