A 39,000-year-old wooly mammoth found in Siberia is set to go on public display in Taiwan on the weekend. The mammoth, called Yuka, was found entombed in 2010 inside the arctic ice of Siberia, with its soft tissue and blonde-red wool preserved. It is believed to have been about 10-years-old when it died. Exhibition organiser Yoshihiro Ota said the mammoth is valuable because of how much of it is intact.
