Russian scientists are examining the stunningly well-preserved bones of an adult woolly mammoth that roamed the earth at least 10,000 years ago after locals discovered its remains in the shallows of a north Siberian lake.   Part of its skull, several ribs and leg bones, some with soft tissue still attached to them, were retrieved from Russia's remote Yamal peninsula above the Arctic circle on July 23. Scientists are still searching the site for other bones from the skeleton.   Researchers don't yet know exactly when it walked the earth or how old it was when it died, said Dmitry Frolov, director of the Scientific Centre for Arctic studies, but that the soft tissue left behind could lead to clues.   For more info, please go to Subscribe to Global News Channel HERE: Like Global News on Facebook HERE: Follow Global News on Twitter HERE: Follow Global News on Instagram HERE: #GlobalNews
