205 Hair of the woolly mammoth Mammuthus primigee nius Blumenbach, 1799 has been studied for many years. Judging from the ancient rock paintings, figuu rines, and preserved hair fragments, as well as from the data of numerous paleontological researches, the mammoth hair was long (up to 1 m or even longer), thick, multiitiered, and with topographical differr(More)
291 Skeletal remains and frozen corpses of fossil mamm mals, having special scientific value, are preserved in the permafrost. A considerable amount of such remains has been found in the Arctic zone of Yakutia, in regions of spreading ice sediments of the Yedoma suite. To date, more than 15 frozen corpses, including mammoths, wooly rhinoceroses, horses,(More)
The results of anatomical and morphological studies of new corpse remains of the fossil woolly rhinoceros found in 2007 in the lower reaches of the Kolyma River are described. These new data provide additional details of the specific features of the structures and sizes of individual body parts of the fossil rhinoceros and allow for several inferences on(More)
An analysis of the available data on the various adaptations of the woolly mammoth to the cryoarid conditions of the Ice Age is presented. Mammuthus primigenius had a set of specific anatomic–morphological (thick long three-row wool, small ears, a short tail, an adipose “hump”, a “hood”-like extension on the trunk, and wide soles of the feet) and(More)
Novel findings of fossil remains of the extinct artiodactyl Soergel’s ox, as well as some findings that were not analyzed previously, are presented in the article. Soergelia remains are extremely rare; therefore, the species range of these animals remains uncharacterized by now and the taxonomic positions of some findings are not clear. Analysis of the new(More)
Hair microstructure of the first calf of the woolly rhinoceros Coelodonta antiquitatis found in Sakha in 2014 (the neck and hind leg hair) was examined by the light and electron scanning microscopy. The calf hair features were compared with those of two adults studied earlier. The calf coat color was much lighter than in adults, from pale ashy to blond. The(More)
141 Frozen corpses of fossil mammals occasionally found out in the permafrost in northern Siberia are of special scientific value. The study of mummies of Pleistocene mammals preserved in the permafrost provides a lot of new information, which is not availl able when bone remains, the usual paleontological objects of study, are studied. In July 2010, horse(More)
239 For a long time, cave bears Ursus (Spelearctos) spp. were considered to be typical representatives of bears that lived in Europe during the Pleistocene [1, 2]. Later, it has become clear that they also lived in the area of modern Israel, the Caucasus, South Siberia, Kyrgyzstan, and Korea [3–5]. Dental morphology and isotope data obtained indicate that(More)
