Gold miners in Canada’s Yukon territory have discovered a mummified and largely intact body of a baby woolly mammoth.

The miners uncovered the creature on Tuesday while digging through permafrost, according to a government news release.

The woolly mammoth was found in the Klondike gold fields in the traditional territory of the Trʼondëk Hwëchʼin people.

Elders of the Trʼondëk Hwëchʼin community have named the mammoth Nun cho ga, or “big baby animal” in their language, the release states.

Geologists from the University of Calgary and the Yukon Geological Survey estimate that the female baby mammoth is over 30,000 years old, the release states. It was shielded from decay by the layer of permafrost covering it.
