Cryptid Alert! Feel the wool of a living woolly mammoth!
By Nick Brown [ Wed Feb 8 2012 3:48 PM ]
Do you believe in true love? Do you believe there are living woolly mammoths in Siberia? As if for Valentine’s Day, this spectacular footage of a woolly mammoth crossing a river hath created a new spark of wonder in my black heart. I have always and forever remained hopeful that a few of these guys were still hanging around. I gave up on the glyptodon and megatherium, but never on my number one mammal, the woolly mammoth. Or maybe it’s a just bear with a fish in his mouth, and love is fake and woolly mammoths never existed. Happy Valentine’s Day, fake woolly mammoth. I don’t know what to get you.
