We all know about woolly mammoths, but did you know that woolly rhinos exist?
Sasha, the ten-century-old baby woolly rhino, is one of a few rhinos to be discovered, but she is the only calf.
Two hunters found Sasha in September while boating down a stream in Siberia, after mistaking her for a dead reindeer. They dug her out and stored her through the winter until delivering her to the Sakha Republic Academy of Sciences last week, Wired reported.
Experts guess that she was about 18-months-old when she died, living in the Pleistocene era, around 2,588,000 to 11,700 years ago, when climate change drove most species to extinction.
This infant will help researchers understand this specific species: how it grew, where it lived and which rhinos today descended from it.
The baby, woolly rhino's body is a little chewed, but researchers still have its leg, torso,and head, as well as an ear, an eye, teeth, two horns, and a piece of woolly skin.
Even though she's not completely intact, she's still pretty adorable.
