"The find suggests humans may have contributed to their extinction, before the creatures were finally wiped out in the great thaw ten millennia ago."

In 10.000 years, absolutely nothing has changed.

I wonder if scientists will be able to extract any DNA from this beastie.

This Is Very Interesting. It is wonderful that this long extinct animal was found. (I do question cloning long extinct animals, -remember the plot of the 1st Jurassic Park movie. (In case you didn't see it, the scientists allowed a dinosaur egg, which had been found, to hatch. You can guess what developed.) Plus, where & how well would the clone of this mammoth live today? Would he be kept in a freezing cold room at some university or gov't facility for his entire life? -Bev
