Reindeer Herder Stumbles Upon Baby Woolly Mammoth

The mammoth's name is Lyuba - and that's why we never let a Russian reindeer herder name anything important.

He Herder was chasing some of Rudolph's buddies when he discovered a perfectly preserved 40,000-year-old mammoth calf poking out of the permafrost.

Natalia Fyodorova, the find's expedition leader, expects this discovery to get a lot of attention, especially because the baby was found in the same region of Arctic Yamalo-Nenetsk as the last mammoth find four years ago. She said:

"If it is true what is said about how it is preserved, this will be another sensation of global significance."

For now, scientist are planning to send Lyuba to Salekhard so they can put her in a giant freezer. Go Science!

Giant woolly mammoths have been extinct since the Earth's last Ice Age 1.8 million to around 11,500 years ago.

Shark Week is HERE!!

It's the most wonderful time of the year. The razor-sharp comedian gets into the swim of things as host of the annual Discovery Channel event.

Andy Samberg claims the prestigious job has its downsides.

"The worst thing about being Chief Shark Officer is that I had to go to the Bahamas. Ugh."

When asked if he has any tips for next years Shark Week host the SNL star said:

"I don't think I really care about the next Chief Shark Officer. Like, I hope they die. I know that seems harsh, but I hope they die."

LOL! Such a sweetheart.

See more pics of the Chief Shark Officer swimming with his new pals below!

Turns Out, Polar Bears Are Irish

Turns Out, Polar Bears Are Irish


Ever wonder why polar bears love to dance gigs and always call into work sick the day after St. Patrick's day?

Well…. it turns out the Arctic's dwindling population of polar bears all descend from a single mama brown bear which lived 20,000 to 50,000 years ago in present-day Ireland.

A study recently released said DNA samples from the great white carnivores — taken from across their entire range in Russia, Canada, Greenland, Norway and Alaska — revealed that every individual's lineage could be traced back to this Irish forebear.

Interbreeding may have helped polar bears survive climate change events in the past — offering some hope for the future.
