Mammoth skeleton discovered near Paris

French archaeologists from the National Institute for Preventive Archaeological Research say that they have discovered a rare, near complete skeleton of a mammoth in Changis-sur-Marne northeast Paris.

It is thought to be that of an adult woolly mammoth, a species which died out around 10,000 years ago.
