Blood from a mammoth - level 2
Scientists found a body of a mammoth in Siberia. They say that the body is more than 10.000 years old.
One scientist says that the meat of this mammoth looks quite fresh even though it is old. The meat is still a little bit red. The animal's blood was also found. Scientists can't wait to study this blood. They have already taken samples of it.
The blood is well-preserved. It gives them hope that they might clone the animal one day. Scientists have been trying to clone a mammoth since the 1990s.
Interesting words: sample (small part of something), well-preserved (still in good condition).
