Russia uncovers 40,000 year-old wolf head, preserved in ice

"The next step in the wolf's journey is to undergo a procedure called plastination, a technique of replacing water and fat with plastics. That prevents decay and preserves tissue for scientific purposes.

"This is a fixation by chemical means, so that the fur would not come off and so that we could keep it (the head) unfrozen," Valery Plotnikov, one of academy scientists, said in the footage."

One of these days they might start Jurassic parking these specimens. Would be pretty cool but dangerous if you ask me

Pretty cool. Areas we might wish weren't thawing, but they are finding some great stuff.
