YAKUTSK, Russia (AP) — Russian scientists on Monday showed off a prehistoric puppy, believed to be 18,000 years old, found in permafrost in the country’s Far East.Discovered last year in a lump of frozen mud near the city of Yakutsk, the puppy is unusually well-preserved, with its hair, teeth, whiskers and eyelashes still intact.
“This puppy has all its limbs, pelage – fur, even whiskers. The nose is visible. There are teeth. We can determine due to some data that it is a male,” Nikolai Androsov, director of the Northern World private museum where the remains are stored, said at the presentation at the Yakutsk’s Mammoth Museum which specializes in ancient specimens.
In recent years, Russia’s Far East has provided many riches for scientists studying the remains of ancient animals. As the permafrost melts, affected by climate change, more and more parts of woolly mammoths, canines and other prehistoric animals are being discovered. Often it is mammoth tusk hunters who discover them.
“Why has Yakutia come through a real spate of such unique findings over the last decade? First, it’s global warming. It really exists, we feel it, and local people feel it strongly. Winter comes later, spring comes earlier,” Sergei Fyodorov, scientist with the North Eastern Federal University, told The Associated Press.
“And the second very serious, deep reason, of why there a lot of finds is the very high price of mammoth tusk in the Chinese market.”When the puppy was discovered, scientists from the Stockholm-based Center for Palaeogenetics took a piece of bone to study its DNA.
“The first step was of course to send the sample to radio carbon dating to see how old it was and when we got the results back it turned out that it was roughly 18,000 years old,” Love Dalén, professor of evolutionary genetics at the center, said in an online interview.
Further tests, however, left the scientists with more questions than answers — they couldn’t definitively tell whether it was a dog or a wolf.“We have now generated a nearly complete genome sequence from it and normally when you have a two-fold coverage genome, which is what we have, you should be able to relatively easily say whether it’s a dog or a wolf, but we still can’t say and that makes it even more interesting,” Dalén said.
He added that the scientists are about to do a third round of genome sequencing, which might solve the mystery. Read more: The Associated Press »
Jurassic World Here We Come Wow! They found a baby lion and elephant too Canada start digging already! Dont make me come up there. Doggo Petition to get Dogor cloned 🤙 It's a Pupsicle 😆 Where can I adopt? I thought he was on a farm this whole time😭😭 So all he does is sleep? He could have a show called “snooze clues”
I’m so sad. : ( Das doggo, my doggo got same looking teeth thaw him out!! he’s cold 🥺 The Thing Not to be a downer but I think it might be dead I would happily scran that GailSpeculates But can he teach us any new tricks? 😭 I bet he was very cute. I would have given him lots of fuss and play time 💞 He was the bestest boy 😢
Now they gonna clone the dino-mutt and claim a new breed from Russia and sell to stupid rich ass holes for 50k a pop or shell I say pup That’s so cool but also so sad. Poor little thing. They should have named him Dino the dinosaur dog. Get it...The Flinstones dog “Dino” I promise us russians arent that weird
Doggo 🐾 ShawneeSwick NickCavallo1 Why does this make me sad? Good frosty boi 😥 Still adorable. Dog or wolf, I just want to hold it and rub its little belly. Don’t bury him in Pet Sematary ☠️ So that’s one upside to climate change, we’re discovering things that have been hidden under the ice andrewpdocherty
Yeah that's cool....More importantly, why is Russia digging around in the permafrost? Good Dogar!!! These are the same people that killed the first dog in space and lied about it . So there’s that 🤷🏼♀️ He's not dead. He's just in permanent hibernation. That’s awesome Amazing This is going to end up like that tv show where the kids found the animal in the permafrost and it had some weird prehistoric disease. Anyone else see that? I think it was Swedish.
bring him back pLEASE Wow!! Good boy! He was a good dog Brent. I thought this was medical grade marijuana is he still alive INVENT THE TECHNOLOGY. BRING HIM BACK TO LIFE. I feel sorry for him... it must be really cold. go fetch? give the thang some water DAYUM *Sarah Maclachlan song plays mournfully in the background*
WakeUp_541 And of course I stuck to tradition and buried my ol pup... lesson learned. Great.. now we will hear that it was a pit bull that rushed into forest fires to save children. Puppy ;-; Rest in eternal joy, dear precious puppy. ❤🙏❤ Omg he is adorable tho, huh? Someone’s cutting onions... This has blown my mind, 🤯 not only is it so well preserved, but 18,000 years,
It would be a wolf since I read a wolf was the prehistoric dog. That thing looks too alive. Probably still incubating ancient germs. Wake HIM up!! The world is a fascinating place. 😢 kzrutherford he’s so skinny :( he probably starved and/or froze to death :( I’m sorry but this shit ugly Take him here. What could go wrong?
Would it be possible to clone or no? That way you could get a definitive answer. jjauthor Is the puppy ok?❤ Is it ok? The article implies puppy was 'found' because of 'climate change' and the permafrost melting... what cant climate change do? Meanwhile in the land of permafrost... How do we know if it identifies as a dog or wolf? Maybe it is old enough to choose for itself. Genes say it is a male...but perhaps it chose to live as a female? You can’t give it a pronoun just based on chromosomes. The arrogance. Science is so difficult these days...lol
Puppy! Bro how is the condition still good? It looks like the crack fox off the mighty boosh Just a guess.... Good baby boy Did Jesus love him too even though he existed before Jesus?🤔 His name is Seymour Asses I’m sure they will revive it and that way we can have a new species of dolf! Dog/wolf. 🤣😂 It didn't have to die.
Poor little pupsicle😕 Why not say 20,000 year old? It’s probably a Dire Wolf, and no, not the one’s from Game Of Thrones Bruh, I can't, not again I'm sticking with hyena. Hey dog_rates ☹ How can it be 18,000 years old when the earth is only 6,000 years old So fake. crazy It's just a dead frozen puppy. A pupsicle, if you will.
...Dammit...they found Seymour. Bring him back to life please qsmith517 LandisDaniels I bet he was such a good boy :-( The most disturbing part of this story is that the PERMAFROST IS MELTING!! Scan him for a ID chip The shape of a few of his front teeth fascinate me. If he isn't dog or wolf what is he? The oldest good boi.
So, would you call that a.... PUPSICLE?! No! No! YES! CoverseGurl The coldest boye Epic He looks so thin... I wonder how he died so young 😢 Now give it to the chinese to clone. dog_rates I bet he was a good boi 247razz Look at that good boi 😍 Does it have to purely be dog or wolf? Wolfs just didnt suddenly turn into dogs. Maybe it is a canine that is between that evolutionary gap between the two.
its seymour asses Scientifically speaking it could also be a pupper or sub woofer Fake I think we all know this can’t be true...I have it on good authority from the not at all batshit crazy folks at the Creation Museum that Earth is no more than 10,000 years-old. Cuz Jesus. Uh-oh, Russia worshipping GOP evangelicals will be shocked by this heresy! The earth is only 6000 yrs old! Science bad! Satan behind me!
An ancient good boi 😭💕 viallerafaela jess_lou19 I would rub his belly! bobbycblanchard “Permafrost” is a word we’re going to be using a lot less in the new decade Fascinating! Can we clone him? Send him to China, they don’t have rules about cloning do they? Well its Russia so there's always a chance it's a fake
That's a 126,000 year old prehistoric puppy (in Dog years). There, fixed it. It’s a dog. 😂 Hey dog_rates this little pupper has waited a long time to be rated by you... such a patient good boi! :(((((( Name it Seymour Asses That's insane. I can't even fathom how long 18,000 years would be and the amount of events that have taken place in that time. Yet somehow this animal's body still exists. Wow.
clone it . It looks like the dog from the movie, The Never Ending Story Amazing. This is unbelievable. They can’t tell as yet if it’s a dog or a wolf. Can’t wait to hear more. The ancient good boy Was it chipped? It's a year old must have been DOPED Russian Bullshit Seymour? Immediately thought of this georgiasrevenge
Holy shit it’s so well preserved. It’s like it died yesterday. BoseDillon teamdoggo Fuck dinosaurs let’s revive this pupper! And he's adorable 😪 SEYMOUR 🐕 Hey scientist... can I... can I pet it please? very old doggo Isn't that Fry's dog from Futurama? SereneSquirrel Jamie_Woodward_ this is going to get cloned right? And if not why not?
tammyshiann As amazing as this is old germs will be exposed to us too Still waiting for Fry 😭 I wonder if there's an estimate on how old he is. He looks really tiny! I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess 3 months? But that's just bases off the face and size...? Revive him Wow! Amazing! .....climate change not so much...
He’s sooo cute! He isn't dead, he just ran away. Wtf is a doggo? SorcererLance Good sleep, good boy 😢 Really upset lil homie is dead. I know he was a good boy he don’t deserve that him :) i like him!! I am without words. That's absolutely incredible~ I could only imagine the lucky people who were blessed to have such a delightful doggo~ ❤️
Still younger then Ruth Bader Ginsburg if a beaver, dog and a wolf had a baby Why do I feel sad seeing this that's 126,000 in dogg years Incredibly well preserved. But it's kind of sad because it looks like it just 'went to sleep' yesterday. It looks fake like a movie prop dummy🤔🤷 Soooo y’all can tell how old the animal is but can’t make out what exactly it is.... Science is bullshit I swear.
Stay! Good dog. The first ever goodest boi But more importantly WHAT’S👏THE👏GOOD👏BOY’S👏NAME👏 thats one old ass baby Hope its a OCD wolf 🐺 Dog 🐕 18,000 years ago not far way. The way that scientist holds the Doggo wolf like a load of bread got me 😧 You found my dog🤭 I hope he's ok. I'm no biologist but that sounds like a long time without belly rubs.
This makes me thing of Seymour Asses and now my heart is in shambles 😭😭😭 Frickin A scientists. This is a picture of a dead puppy I hate it i know it died like 18 k years ago but i’m crying 🥺 JennieDuke He would have been the goodest boy 😢 maxhockey421 Devil Dog Incredible. This is like the best thing I've seen online in a long while.
LojtarTV So I guess it stays frozen even when brought inside to thaw. FAKE! Me:How’s your day been? Perma Puppy: Ruff In the feels... this makes me feel bad :( look at how skinny the poor thing was before it passed Stay! Ancient good boy🐶 Call him Percy. Increible. This is like the best thing I've seen online in a long while.
A puppy has been dead for almost 20,000 years and I’m all getting emotional over it. Ffs. Man it get deep animal fantasy If they carbon dated it then it’s wrong Prehistoric Good Boi i’ll adopt it PIKTURDIS Michthecat 🥺🥺🥺🥺 Clearly a lie. The world is only 2019 years old. this is going to make me cry That puppy looks pretty good for being 18,000 years old.
geemarie816 Is this interesting because they think this is some extinct other species? I don’t get what’s so interesting about it? Someone good at science please explain. Absolutely Fascinating Atom_cr prehistoric puppies can be good boys too Is that Fry's dog Seymour? He's so well preserved😳He look like he's sleeping from the front view!
Grab the DNA and clone it like they clone old rich people. Lmao Can I adopt? Hoax Not sure how I’m feeling seeing the dead frozen puppy.😳 It clearly belongs to Otzi the iceman funnylookingdog OMG, THE PUPPY TEEFERS!!! Bless it. White5Anthronet They’re trying to figure out if it’s a dog or wolf....but how do they know it’s a dog or a wolf? Maybe it’s neither. Maybe it’s a different, extinct member of the genus Canis (canines)?!
how much for the meat? He was a good boy. This is crazy. He's in such good condition I keep waiting for him to open his puppy eyes 😢 You’re not longer cold baby 🐶😍 So this puppy is evidence of rapid climate change in the absence of soccer moms causing it with by driving large SUV’s . Interesting ! I bet Russia just froze a regular dog and trying to pass it as old.
Looks like a regular ass dog Sadly this is a mad scientist experiment! I bet he’d be good with some warm gravy. Bruh that’s a cat Puppy teeth!!! 😍 Looks like a hyena Clone him! I want him now! Bring him back to life NOW It was probably really cute to prehistoric man... KariVanHorn Delete this Look at that poor baby
dabeerishere Damn brah, is he good? dog_rates the first Good Boy sheWolf_77 any idea what spieces this is? Does this have wolfy DNA!!! SpencerBanister cutie How is this even possible I mean it has to be a wolf look at its teeth and wolves have much bigger paws than a regular puppy Looks like a brown bear cub to me.
Still a heckin good boy With no collar or tags, they’ll have a tough time finding the owner. street_brice How will this impact our election? Soi that's where Bette Midler has been hiding Whose the good boy? We can take the missing genetic code from a frawg to make a real Lahv Dina saw er I’m sure some idiot will want to adopt it
Great. Now I'm sad about an 18,000 year-old puppy. Dog and wolf greatest grand uncle (bc you know) Any indication that it was domesticated? It's a wolf. Folks purposely melting permafrost for GOLD, SILVER, PRECIOUS-STONES & MINERALS FURTHER CAUSING EARTH'S CORE TOO GROW EVEN HOTTER! THESE FOOLISH PPL & COUNTRIES WL LIE THE CORE IS NOT AFFECTED BY EARTH'S CRUST! BUT U REMOVE TOP LAYER OF ANYALL THAT'S CREATED & WHAT HAPPENS!
He could be apart of the Death Stranding OMG ITS Seymour!!! Phteven. This dog is like 80 years old tops. Carbon dating still sucks. Still waiting for people to stop ignoring that it dated a penny made in 1915 as like 25000 years old. It sucks. Good puppy ...it can't be 18,000 years old even using your secular history
looks like a wolf, as a matter of fact, the same damn wolf we all see today. What's your favorite flavor of pupsicle? Encino Dog Isn’t there a single evil Russian scientist that can clone this little guy? can u believe anything Russia says? My dog could kick that dogs ass. Seymour I have seen this episode. Quick someone track down Fry. We found his dog.
Russia and China launch new gas pipeline, build first bridge in bid to transform the EastA new international gas pipeline and bridge between Russia and China are hoped not only to boost bilateral trade, but also to transform the economic outlook of the East amid tensions with the West.
