In watching the Nat Geo program "waking the baby mammoth" I learned a bunch of things. One was that the baby mammoth ate her mothers fecal matter in order to obtain organisms to help her digest the plant life as she is weaned off her mothers milk. (There's a joke in there, I'm sure).

The mammoth was found by a Nenet reindeer herdsman on the Yamal Peninsula in Russia in 2007. The mammoth was preserved in most pristine condition.
She died 41,800 years ago.

Cool show, literally. Show customs of the natives in the arctic.
