The member of the extinct species is a 10-year-old female and is believed to have died about 39,000 years ago.

The solidified body was named 'Yuka' after Russia's Sakha (Yakutia) Republic, where it was discovered and is thought to be one of the world's largest.

Yuka has a long trunk, arms and legs preserved in nearly perfect state.
