28,000 years later, researchers say the “best-preserved ice age animal”

Researchers have found the remains of a cave lion about 28,000 years old in the Siberian Permafrost Radio Canada.

The body of a female lion cub nicknamed Sparta was discovered by a citizen in 2018 on the banks of the Semiulak River in Russia. A study published in this discovery states that Sparta “The Best Protected Ice Age Animal Discovered.”

“She’s more or less the same, except for the fur, which is a little messy. Even her mustache is protected.”, Says one of the co-authors of the study. According to research, Sparta would have died about 28,000 years ago.

This study is not just about Sparta. She is also studying the case of Boris, another lion cub found 15 meters earlier from the remains of Sparta. As experts thought for a moment, the two mammals are not related. Research shows that Boris probably died 43,000 years ago. “Boris is still a little damaged, but still in good condition.”, The researchers point out.

Why are these animals so well protected? According to the study, they were quickly buried, “There may be a landslide”.
