|Hi Hawkmoon; Re: "Probably one of the hottest years on earth was the year before this frozen Mammoth was munching down on grass in a bog in Siberia. They discovered its frozen remains in Siberia.. In fact, so quickly frozen it's food was still in its mouth.";|
The Russians find these things when mining for ivory. The places they're digging up are where crap from rivers built up. The mammoths fall into the river, drown, and are deposited downstream at these sites that are now being mined using hydraulic methods that are illegal in the US and Canada. Hence we don't find the things over here not because they don't exist but instead because the mining techniques are restricted.
This is far north country and the rivers are very cold. They were as cold or colder back in the ice age. So meat doesn't decay quickly and due to the vagaries of luck, some of the mammoths are very well preserved. That means that the river shifted and they became a part of the permafrost faster than they could decay.
