The frozen head of a 10,000-year-old woolly mammoth excavated with a nearly intact head, tusks and a front leg from the Siberian tundra near the town of Yakutsk, northeastern Russia, is shown in October 2003 in a laboratory's freezer storage in Yakutsk.(Naoki Suzuki, Japan Association for the 2005 World Exposition/AP)
