15,000 year-old Woolly Mammoth Unveiled in UAE
Standing tall at four metres and weighing one tonne, a 15,000 year-old woolly mammoth was unveiled as a permanent display at Marina Mall on Tuesday.
The UAE’s latest historical attraction, which features a genuine fossil, was discovered in the late 1990s on the banks of the Irtysh River in Siberia.
Dr Shaikh Sultan Bin Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Adviser to the President of the UAE and Chairman of the National Investment Corporation, along with senior officials, attended the inaugural event, which featured a short documentary with an overview about woolly mammoths, followed by the unveiling of the fossil.
