Tokyo: An almost perfectly conserved frozen mammoth was presented to the media in Yokohama on Tuesday.
The 3-meter-tall mammoth, which was excavated in 2010 from the permafrost in eastern Siberia, will be put on exhibit from Saturday in Yokohama , the Japan Times reported.
The member of the extinct species is a 10-year-old female and is believed to have died about 39,000 years ago.
