The strange skeleton was found in Siberia, Russia, where winter temperatures drop to -70C (-94 degrees Fahrenheit).

The skeleton is about 5 meters long. The animal died about a month and a half ago. Yamal Peninsula is the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug of northwest Siberia, Russia. It extends roughly 700 km (435 mi) and is bordered principally by the Kara Sea, Baydaratskaya Bay on the west, and by the Gulf of Ob on the east. At the northern end of this peninsula lie the Malygina Strait and, beyond it, Bely Island. In the language of its indigenous inhabitants, the Nenets, "Yamal" means "End of the Land".
