Woolly mammoth exhibition in Yokohama, Japan
- Yuka is being shown in a cabinet with a temperature of 14 Fahrenheit (-10 Celsius) in order to prevent decomposition.
- Yuka had a broken leg when discovered, suggesting she had been attacked by predators. Parts of her body such as her feet have been remarkably well preserved.
- Yuka's skull had been removed, and was discovered separately from the body. It appears that human hunters cut open the carcass.
- A close-up view of Yuka's dissected skull.
- The skin surrounding the tail remains in almost perfect condition.
- Preserved mammoth hair retains its reddish coloration.
- The skull was so well preserved that scientists were able to extract Yuka's brain in excellent condition.
- This bisected mammoth skull shows the brain cavity.
- Also on display was a mummified woolly rhinoceros carcass from around the same time as Yuka lived. The rhino was about 20 years old and was found in the lower reaches of the Kolyma river in northeastern Siberia.
- Mammoth teeth show fine grooves.
- The exhibition featured reproductions of woolly mammoth cave art.
- This house was constructed from mammoth bones and hide. A similar, 44,000-year-old example was discovered in Ukraine in 2011, demonstrating that Neanderthals were capable of constructing sophisticated structures.
- A mammoth skeleton displayed alongside a full-size illustration of the beast.
