From Siberian Times:
It was during this laboratory autopsy that they discovery of liquid blood in the baby horse, boosting hopes of cloning the extinct Lenskaya horse species back to life and paving the way for a similar attempt with the woolly mammoth.
The blood is believed to be the oldest ever found, as reported here yesterday.
Now we can reveal that during this groundbreaking procedure scientists also found urine intact in the prehistoric foal – but sadly failed to discover any mother’s milk in the animal which drowned aged less than two weeks old some 42,000 years ago.
The experts in a laboratory in Yakutsk are dissecting the ancient foal in an attempt to obtain cells which can be used in a cloning bid.
